SCCEBA Member Supports Clean Transportation with Level Three Electric Charging Stations

SPINX Co. Adds Electric Charging Stations to Seven of its South Carolina Locations

August 22, 2016 – Columbia, S.C. – South Carolina Clean Energy Business Alliance member, Spinx Co., recently added Level 3 electric charging stations to seven of its South Carolina convenience stores.

The charging stations can charge an electric vehicle in 30 minutes.  These new Spinx charging stations are part of Nissan’s “No Charge to Charge” program, where eligible Nissan Leaf owners receive 24 months of complimentary public charging.  Although, these charging stations can be used for any electric vehicle, provided the owner has their vehicle specific charging port. 

“Having easily accessible electric vehicle charging stations across SC from the Upstate to our coast is essential. Convenience and ease of use is what will encourage consumers to invest in electric vehicles,” said Patricia Pierce, Executive Director of the South Carolina Clean Energy Business Alliance.  “We are proud to have the Spinx Co. as member of SCCEBA because they are and have been a leader in growing SC’s clean energy economy and helping SC achieve positive strides in creating clean transportation corridors in our state.”

On July 12, Spinx hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony at its store at 901 on Marue Drive in Greenville.  In addition, they have added Level 3 chargers at the following locations. 

  • 8001 Broad River Road, Irmo
  • 1414 E. Washington Street, Greenville
  • 697 Fairview Road, Simpsonville
  • 7495 Augusta Road, Piedmont
  • 1504 Boiling Springs Road, Spartanburg
  • 9636 Highway Station 78, Ladson

“The Spinx vision is to always be the friendly company that makes people’s lives easier, and our mission is to fulfill people’s everyday needs. Now, more than ever, there is a need for clean energy and for easier access to alternative fuel solutions. Remaining true to the Spinx mission and vision meant expanding our services to meet all of our customers’ needs.
