Volta, an industry leader in commerce and people-centric electric vehicle (EV) charging, and Tanger Factory Outlet Centers, a leading owner and operator of upscale open-air outlet centres, have announced a plan to install dynamic Volta charging stations at Tanger locations in nine markets throughout the USA.
The partnership is expected to grow in the coming months and will provide shoppers with access to a mix of DC Fast and L2 charging solutions. Volta’s deployment plan will provide seamless, universal and reliable charging tailored to Tanger shopper characteristics.
The partnership is another milestone in Volta’s ongoing work to connect clean miles to commerce and Tanger’s commitment to building a more sustainable future through innovative, customer-driven experiences and amenities.
Scott Mercer, Volta CEO, said: “Our intelligent charging network converts deep behavioral insights into dollars while bringing convenient, reliable charging to places where people already spend time.
“Reducing carbon emissions while putting drivers and customers first is core to both of our companies’ missions, which is why our collaboration with Tanger is a natural fit.”
With eye-catching charging stations located near the entrances of premier commercial properties, Volta’s network is among the most utilised in the US. Through its dynamic, 55-inch dual digital screens, Volta provides an advertising and communications platform that accelerates electric vehicle (EV) adoption.
This will not only help with electric vehicle adoption of local shoppers but will also help to encourage tourists and foreign visitors, who often shop at these outlet centres during their holidays in the USA.
Amid spiralling fuel prices, Volta recently reminded shoppers about the price of fuel in the US showing the huge cost savings by driving an electric vehicle compared to an internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicle.
Leslie Swanson, Tanger Outlets COO, said: “At Tanger, we are laser-focused on creating long-term value for our customers and retail partners while building strong, vibrant communities and a cleaner, healthier future for us all.
Our partnership with Volta will provide our customers with a high-value service as they shop while helping our retail partners attract new, loyal shoppers who are in search of a convenient charge.”
“It will also allow our media partners to capitalise on Volta’s unique, eye-catching and sustainable ad platform, further elevating how customers view, shop and connect with Tanger’s brands.”
