Native Sun Natural Foods Market has recently completed installation of Electric Vehicle Charging Stations at both its Mandarin and Southside store locations, as part of the ChargeWell program and were made possible through grants initiated by the North Florida Transportation Planning Organization (TPO). The goal of the ChargeWell program is to create an expanded network of charging stations that offer electric vehicle drivers more opportunities to charge up in the Jacksonville area.

For Native Sun, the ChargeWell stations are part of the company’s continued efforts to support meaningful sustainability initiatives in the Jacksonville area. In addition, to raise awareness and promote future purchases of electric vehicles, Native Sun has committed to offering the charging stations at no cost to customers for the first year.

Native Sun’s Community Relations Manager, Meghan Fiveash expressed her excitement over the introduction of the ChargeWell stations, saying, “the charging stations represent an opportunity for us to increase environmental awareness while supporting those who have already made the decision to purchase an electric vehicle. We love that we’re able to offer free charging for the next year and hope to see an increase in the number of electric vehicles in the area as the network of ChargeWell stations continues to expand.”

The ChargeWell program kicked off in December for select JEA customers. Future grants may see ChargeWell stations awarded to other energy companies like Beaches Energy in the Jacksonville Beach. That would make it possible for the newest Native Sun location in Jacksonville Beach to introduce a charging station of its own.
