Ikea Electric Vehicle Charging Stations
IKEA plans to put three electric car charging stations in its new Columbus store when it opens in the summer of 2017.
The world’s best-known home furnishings store, IKEA, said today that it would put three Blink electric vehicles (EV) charging stations in its new Columbus store, which will open in the summer of 2017.
This will be Ohio’s second Blink station. This project shows that IKEA and Car Charging Group, Inc. (OTC: CCGI), which owns the Blink Network and Blink EV charging stations, have been working together for a long time.
CCGI is the largest provider of EV charging services, with thousands of public EV charging stations in 36 states and two countries. It’s now possible to charge your electric car at 16 IKEA stores in the United States.
“Installing EV charging stations at the new IKEA Columbus shows our commitment to the environment,” said David Garcia, the store manager. As a retailer, IKEA knows that focusing on the transportation of people can help customers learn how to live more sustainably.
Taking care of the needs of electric vehicle drivers helps meet both of these goals simultaneously.
Using a Blink card (RFID card) to charge an electric vehicle at the future IKEA Columbus is the easiest way to do it.
Drivers can tap their card to the reader below the screen, start a charging session from the Blink Mobile app, or use a guest code given to them by the Blink Mobile app or Blink Customer Support (888-998-2546).
Then, while their automobiles are charging, drivers may shop and eat at their own speed at the IKEA store. EV drivers may usually join Blink for free and save money on charging.
blinknetwork.com has more information about how to use the Blink EV charging stations, become a Blink Member, use the Blink stations, and join.
From its Swedish roots and respect for nature, IKEA thinks its business model can be good for the environment and good for the people who work there.
IKEA looks around the world for places where it can help conserve resources, uses new materials in its products, works to keep resources safe, and flat-packs goods for easy distribution.
These are just some examples of what the United States is doing to be more environmentally friendly: recycling waste material, making buildings more energy-efficient with recycled materials, skylights in warehouse plastic shopping bags from the checkout process and solely selling LED lights.
IKEA has installed more than 700,000 solar panels on buildings worldwide and owns more than 350 wind turbines, including 104 in the United States. This is in line with its goal to be energy independent by 2020.
IKEA Columbus is built on 33 acres near I-71 and Gemini Place in the Polaris Centres of Commerce. The 354,000-square-foot shop and 1,200 parking spots will include IKEA’s signature architectural style.
It will also have one of the largest rooftop solar arrays in Ohio, consistent with 90% of IKEA U.S. stores having solar panels. A new IKEA store is going to create 500 jobs during construction.
When the store opens, 300 new employees from the construction will join the company. Positions are now available online, and there will be more in the Spring. As of now, customers can shop at IKEA stores in West Chester, OH; Pittsburgh, PA; Canton, MI; and on IKEA-USA.com.
IKEA added a charging station for electric cars after people liked it.
People who drive electric cars are coming to IKEA’s Las Vegas store to use the new charging station, which comes after it was installed at 13 other stores and lets people pay for it with a mobile app.
The discount furniture store has worked well with Blink in 13 other places, and this time it will be launching the service at its Las Vegas, Nevada, store. This will help Blink sell more and make it even more eco-friendly. People who want to charge their cars can join Blink and run the charging session through its app.
People can live more sustainably if they can charge their electric cars at IKEA stores, says Amy Jensen, a store manager at IKEA, Las Vegas. “We are a company with a strong focus on sustainability,” she says.
“In Las Vegas, EV charging stations go well with the many other things IKEA has done in the area, like installing Nevada’s largest single-use commercial rooftop array.”
Customers who drive electric cars near the IKEA store in Las Vegas are now being driven in to charge their cars while they shop at the furniture store. IKEA is taking advantage of a chance to keep people in its stores longer, which can lead to more impulse sales and help the company build a green image.
Blink guests can use its mobile app to get a code to start a charging session on the machine. Members will be able to start the session right from their mobile apps. Users have to start the charge session first, then connect the charger to their cars, like when they fill up their cars with gas.
If you want to leave your car charging while you shop at Ikea, you can do so in the Blink app. Owners of electric vehicles must pay to charge their cars. They can also do this through Blink’s app, which gives members discounts.
People who use IKEA mobile try to get people to use it more
IKEA Canada added to the shopping experience with an in-store companion app that lets people make lists, check off items they’ve already bought, and find product locations from their mobile devices (see more).
An IKEA executive at the M-commerce Summit: State of Mobile Commerce 2016 said that the retailer is testing a mobile programme that generates QR codes for the products in customers’ shopping carts. This is part of a long-term focus on in-store technology that makes shopping easier for customers.
Las Vegas EV drivers can use the Blink Mobile app to search for and learn about the many EV charging stations on the Blink Network even if they aren’t in front of a computer at the time, said Ms. Jensen.
