Big Y Supermarkets are now offering electric vehicle charging stations at most of its locations, including at the store on West Street in Pittsfield.

According to Big Y officials, they are always looking for opportunities to promote efficient and "green" living at Big Y, and that's why they are providing ChargePoint EV Stations to their customers so that they can charge their electric cars while they shop.

There is no fee to access or use the charging stations and there are currently three ways to access the unit for a charging session:

  • By using a contactless credit card
  • By using a ChargePoint card.
  • Calling the 800 number on the front of the unit for 24/7 assistance.
