Road Ranger Travel Center joins the EV Community in partnering with FreeWire, an industry leader in ultra-fast EV charging and energy management solutions, to offer alternative fueling options to consumers.
Making a conscious effort to support the build-out of the electric vehicle charging infrastructure, Road Ranger welcomes the first of many EV Boost Charging Stations to their Waco, TX location. The ribbon cutting for this location is scheduled to commence on March 8th, 2023 at 9 AM CST.
In conjunction with Road Ranger’s sustainability initiative, they have committed to the purchase of 12 Boost Charger Charging Stations. These stations will be deployed across 6 sites in 2023, with the subsequent commitment expected to double in the coming years.
“Our goal is to provide the consumer with the energy they need to keep them going. We know this comes in many forms - whether its food, water, gas, or electricity, we want all travelers to feel welcome here. As we continue to grow, adding EV charging to the already long list of amenities Road Ranger has to offer is very exciting.” Said Marko Zaro, CEO of Road Ranger.
Road Ranger enhances their environmentally conscious efforts by offering a fast charge solution to their consumers. Using an internal battery to increase the speed of the charge instead of directly using grid power, Road Ranger EV Chargers will allow the battery-integrated rapid charger to deliver approximately 200 miles in 15 minutes, allowing customers to get back on the road quickly and safely.
“While we were not the first in our industry to join the EV community, it’s exciting to be a part of such a remarkable step forward, not only in Road Ranger’s history but in the future of fueling. Road Ranger strives to foster a positive relationship with not only our customers but the local communities we operate in as well. Ensuring we offer fueling alternatives is just another way to show the community how much we care about our future together.” said Ryan Arnold, VP of Marketing at Road Ranger.
