Mollie Stone's Unveils Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

Customers can charge their batteries for up to an hour while they shop for groceries.

Mollie Stone’s is unveiling electric vehicle charging stations this month, starting with a spot at its Sausalito location.

Customers can charge up for an hour while shopping for groceries at the Sausalito locale, the first charging station at a Bay Area grocery store, reported MarinScope Community Newspapers. Mollie Stone's launched the station -- which can charge two vehicles at the same time -- last week. 

Charging stations, run by Campbell-based ChargePoint, will soon spread to Mollie Stone’s Burlingame and Palo Alto locations. Eventually the store wants to roll out the stations at all of its Bay Area locations, including Greenbrae. 

The stations are indended to help eliminate “range anxiety,” or an EV driver’s fear that their batteries will run out of juice before they get home.

The number of electric vehicles registered in Marin has doubled over the past month.
