Walmart is charging up it's atmosphere!

By: Ryan Wolfe / March 8, 2019


With recent publications clamoring for expedited development in the Electric Vehicle industry, Walmart is adding its name to the list.  Clarion County in NW Pennsylvania has received an application and a push for the installation of 10 parking spaces with charging capabilities in the North end of Walmart’s parking lot.  This idea was proposed by the Walmart Real Estate Business Trust, and corroborated by Clarion County Engineer Kevin Reichard.  Kevin led his proposal by stating “you might get a charge out of this”.

This is a national investment that is expected to cost $2 Billion dollars over the span of a decade. By the end of 2019, they hope to build 450+ charging sites nationwide.
