7-Eleven Offers Electric-Vehicle Charging for New Yorkers

7-Eleven is able to leverage local solar generation and energy storage, which enables the use of high-powered electric equipment, including EV fast chargers.

​SANTA CLARA, CA – Deploying Green Charge Networks (GCN) energy storage solutions, 7-Eleven Inc. is the first retailer to offer fast-charging services for drivers of electric vehicles (EVs) in the New York City area.

7-Eleven and GCN worked with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and several large utility companies to leverage local solar generation and energy storage, which enables the use of high-powered electric equipment, including EV fast chargers. This avoids extreme consumption peaks that lead to expensive electricity-demand charges for commercial ratepayers, according to a press release.

Green Charge Networks’ energy storage system, GreenStation, manages the power consumption at the 5820 Francis Lewis Boulevard 7-Eleven location in Flushing. It monitors the store’s load on a second-by-second basis and counteracts peaks and valleys by discharging and charging from an internal ion battery bank.
