“To be successful in the hotel industry, you have to be able to recognize industry trends early and adopt them when and where applicable,” said Ray Patel, general manager, Microtel Inn and Suites Harrisonburg. “Allowing guests to check-In and plug-In is the next step to being known as a ‘green’ hotel. We’re able to offer EV charging services to our guests while realizing a percentage of the money generated. It’s a win-win situation.”
CarCharging’s services utilize EV charging stations manufactured by ChargePoint, known as Level II, which provide 240 volts with 32 amps of power to quickly refuel an electric vehicle’s battery. EV drivers can easily register and create a CarCharging account online, and attach a small card to their keychain to initiate use and payment at any intelligent CarCharging station.
