Fred Meyer partners with ECOtality to install car-charging stations

BY CSA STAFF

Seattle — Electric transportation technology provider ECOtality said Monday that it has partnered with grocer Fred Meyer, a division of The Kroger Co., to install car-charging stations at select stores in Oregon and Washington.

The Blink Level 2 Electric Vehicle Commercial Pedestal Charging Stations will also be installed on major transportation corridors between Seattle store locations and the United States border with Canada.

The deal makes Fred Meyer ECOtality’s first food retail partner in the Northwest.

As part of the agreement, Fred Meyer will become a commercial launch partner for The EV Project.

“Our customers have been clear that they want to take advantage of the emerging electric car market,” said Michael Ellis, president of Fred Meyer Stores.

ECOtality will begin installing Blink charging stations at Fred Meyer stores in summer 2011. ECOtality said it will work with Fred Meyer as well as relevant area stakeholders to utilize the company’s EV Micro-Climate process to determine which stores are suitable for installation. Factors that influence charging site locations include distance to major interstates and transportation routes, and distance to other Blink EV charging facilities.

The Blink Level 2 Commercial Charging Stations incorporate user-friendly features such as fully interactive color touch screens and web-based information delivery via the Blink Network. A Blink Network smartphone application allows users to access charge station locations and GPS navigation, as well as charge status and notifications of completed or interrupted charging.

Winn Dixie signs cart-cleaning agreement with Green Secure Solutions

BY CSA STAFF

Pompano Beach, Fla. — Winn Dixie Stores has contracted Green Secure Solutions to clean, sanitize and protect shopping carts, hand baskets, handicap carts, food trays and other equipment at the grocer’s 484 stores.

“This service protects our customers’ health by using and environmentally safe product that continues to kill bacteria and other microorganisms for six months between treatments,” said Mary Kellmanson, Winn-Dixie group VP marketing. “We’re providing an invisible shield that provides additional protection for our customers and the food they’re buying.”

Green Secure Solutions’ mobile sanitizing units act like a car wash, with shopping carts and other equipment washed and sterilized as they pass through the unit. Once the carts are dry, technicians electrostatically apply Bioshield 75, and water-based product that creates a highly durable coating that bonds to surfaces on which it is applied.

According to Green Secure, Bioshield 75 is registered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and approved by the U.S. Department of Agriculture for use in food contact surfaces. It is effective in eliminating and preventing growth of E. coli, staphylococcus, MRSA, salmonella strains and other potentially harmful micro-organisms.
