Rural Convenience Stores Invest in EV Charging

February 7, 2022

Rural communities are one of the locations that have the least amount of access to EV charging. Convenience stores are not nearby like in suburban or some urban areas, so places to refuel, especially for electric vehicles, are far and few in between. This causes a setback for long-distance drivers while going into the new EV era. These stores that are primarily located in rural areas are beginning to work out a new business template that includes EV charging stations at their business locations. Adding EV charging stations to local convenience stores can help long-range drivers as well as EV drivers who rent out local apartments or condos and may not have charging access in their complex.

Rural convenience stores are looking for government assistance to make these further EV charging advancements at their businesses. A vice president of popular convenience chain, Sheetz, testified before Congress on behalf of the National Association of Convenience Stores looking to team up with Congress to make the new EV charging accessible and affordable for users and businesses.

“Fuel retailers have made investments in renewable fuels and existing alternative fuel incentives allow retailers to offer lower carbon fuels to consumers at a price at which they are willing to purchase them,” said Sheetz Vice President Trevor Walter.
