Two Volta electric vehicle charging stations have been installed at the Giant grocery store on Columbia Pike in Annandale.
The EV stations offer free charging. Volta generates revenue by charging retailers for space in their parking lots and by charging companies that advertise on the high-definition displays on the charging stations. The ads are customized for the retailer. For example, Giant can display ads highlighting sales on certain items.
Giant started installing Volta EV stations at its stores in mid-2020.
