EVCS Ribbon Cutting at BR Whole Foods Market

First Public EVCS in Baton Rouge

First Public EVCS in Baton Rouge

Whole Foods Baton Rouge hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony for their newly installed electric vehicle charging station (EVCS) installed by Solar Alternatives. This is the capital city’s first public charging station.

The Whole Foods’ management with the help of  local leaders, community partners and team members cut the ribbon on two new EVCS. The EVCS is available complimentary to Whole Food shoppers and you will find them in the painted green parking spaces near the front entrance.

As plug-in hybrid eclectic vehicles and battery electric vehicle ownership expands, there is a growing need for widely distributed publicly accessible charging stations, some of which support faster charging at higher voltages and currents than are available from domestic supplies. Whole Foods and Solar Alternatives has made great strides in expanding the availability of public EVCSs.
