Electric Car Charger Installed in Clarendon

Updated Sept. 5 at 9:00 a.m.

Drivers of electric cars will soon be able to charge up in Clarendon.

The parking lot of the Walgreens Pharmacy at 2825 Wilson Blvd is the site of Arlington’s newest electric car charging station, and it will be operational in about a month.

The station has multiple charging ports for all types of electric cars, including one that charges some cars in 20 minutes. Those interested in using the chargers can buy a monthly subscription from eVgo, the company that owns the ports and is installing about 50 of them around the Washington area in the next several years.

A two-hour charger can be used for a $5-per-month subscription, while the 20-minute charger subscription starts at $20 per month.

There are already electric car charging stations at the Hilton Crystal City and Rosslyn Gateway buildings (part of a competing charger network), stations in Shirlington and at Pentagon Row, and stations in Vornado properties in Crystal City. The Clarendon station is eVgo’s first in the county.
