Chipotle is adding EV charger to some of their restaurants as part of a larger plan to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.
Chipotle (CMG) is out with a new, all-electric restaurant design—all part of the burrito chain's goal to reduce direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions 50% by 2030, compared to 2019.
Next year, Chipotle said 100 of its new locations, "at least," will utilize some of the elements featured in the new design: electric vehicle charging stations, rooftop solar panels, heat pump water heaters and all-electric equipment and systems instead of natural gas. In the kitchen: a smaller electric cook line and upgraded exhaust hoods.
Locations that already feature some of these new elements include Gloucester, in Virginia, and Jacksonville, Florida. This summer, Chipotle plans to open another with these features in Castle Rock, Colorado.
