Spinx first entered the electric-vehicle charging market in 2011, installing five EV chargers in an early effort to establish a charging network across South Carolina. Today, the retailer works with EVgo and Tesla to operate charging units on Spinx properties.
“We pipe all our new sites for the potential of new EV units.”
“Through partnering with these industry leaders, equipment costs and operations remain with the vendor while Spinx benefits from increased inside sales,” said Shaun Bolger, who oversees fuel marketing for the convenience-store chain. The most used of Spinx EV sites is a major highway location that generates about 60 charging sessions per day.
“Our goal is to continue with our strategy and deploy EV charging at the appropriate existing sites, as well as new builds,” he said. “Currently, we pipe all our new sites for the potential of new EV units. Much like many in the c-store arena, we will continue to monitor and adjust accordingly to the EV industry advancements.”
