Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, and Texas are four states that are a part of the charge station expansion plans.

The increase in EV charging units will push Kohl’s total to 101 stations at 52 stores in 14 states.
 


 
“Since Kohl’s EV charging station initiative began in December 2011, it has received extremely positive feedback from our customers who are excited about the added convenience,” said chief administrative officer John Worthington.

“From our solar program to our green building efforts, Kohl’s has been pleased to be able to grow sustainability programs that make sense for our business, customers and communities – and our EV program is one more great example.”

Kohl’s has also teamed up with Duke Energy, ECOtality Inc., and ChargePoint in the company’s EV charging station initiative to boost the number of charging units.

Thanks to a two-year deal with Duke Energy, as part of the Plug-In project in Indiana, six charging stations were installed across Kohl’s locations in central Indiana.

Meanwhile, Kohl’s partnership with ECOtality Inc will allow it to put 30 EV charging stations at 15 stores across Texas, Illinois, and Wisconsin.

Selected outlets will be available until the end of 2013, at which point there will be a review of further potential to keep growing its EV charging station network.
