Plug-in Facts:

  • 1 Charging Station

“The station is located in our Corporate office parking lot at 1839 Morganton Blvd, Lenoir NC 28645. It is just inside the parking lot at our southernmost entrance and is visible from the road. It is a Chargepoint unit with 2 charging connections. Anyone with a Chargepoint account and card can use it but there will be no charge to their card for using it. Anyone who does not have a Chargepoint access card can check in with our receptionist in our corporate office and we will activate it for them.” Eddie Pitts
