Electric Car Chargers Available at Whole Foods

Good news for electric car owners: The new Whole Foods has charging stations.

That’s not surprising for the grocery chain, one of a number of businesses that offers the service to build its green cred with customers.

But it’s a good boost for electric cars in the greater Hyattsville area, which has a higher-than-average rate of one-car households and increasingly walkable housing and retail areas.

According to PlugShare, other public charging stations are at the Rite Aid on Route 1, the Riverdale MARC station, Hyattsville city hall, Magruder Park and several spots on the University of Maryland campus.

Some homes in the Arts District also have wall plugs for electric cars in their garages.

While electric cars remain popular in theory, reports show the availability of public charging stations remains the biggest barrier to wider adoption.

    While the EV charging stations are a noticeable green feature, check out the entire Whole Foods parking lot … they used porous asphalt. Pour out some water on the pavement and you’ll see that it filters into the ground, instead of puddling or running over to storm drain.
