Meijer pilots EV charging stations

Meijer, the major American grocer which ranked #18 on Forbes' 2008 list of America's Largest Private Companies, today announced they'll install the first EV charging station in their home region of West Michigan. Upon learning the news, local clean energy advocates quickly calculated the potentially much bigger implications:
This is great news. We have two of the biggest advance battery plants in the country under construction. It's important for us to be the leader in this field, and for Meijer to be an early adopter of this technology is exciting.
