Columbus retailer unveils vehicle charging station

BLADE STAFF AND NEWS SERVICES

COLUMBUS — Drivers of plug-in electric cars now can get a free charge at the Walmart store in the Columbus suburb of Easton, where the retailer has installed its first public charging station.

The station, unveiled Wednesday, is part of a partnership with Columbus-based American Electric Power.

It arrives at a time when few local drivers have vehicles to charge. Plug-in models such as the Chevrolet Volt and Nissan Leaf are not yet on sale locally.
