EV Charging Stations Coming to Columbia Whole Foods

Whole Foods Charging Station Pad

The new Whole Foods market that is opening in Columbia, Maryland on August 20th, has confirmed that they will have EV charging stations at the new store. Earlier today via Twitter they said, “We’ll have 2 electric vehicle charging stations that can charge 2 vehicles at a time!”

Adjacent to the parking lot at the new store are two concrete pads with electrical conduit and threaded rods that seem to match the bolt pattern of the dual-head GE unit that is installed at the Annapolis Whole Foods. The spacing between those two pads in Columbia seems to be consistent with fitting two cars at each station. Kudos to Whole Foods Market for being a forward thinking company that has electric vehicle charging at most of their stores.
