Loved the post about the phone chargers so let me explain…
I own a vineyard and use two of the rooms in my home as dog-friendly accommodations for wine tourists and others touring our valley. My AirBnB business is really seasonal and I’m in the process of building a tasting room.
Here’s my question: Have any other hosts installed an EV fast charging station on their property?
Was it helpful to advertise that fact?
I was interested to know what percentage of cars on the road (in the US) are electric. Wikipedia said (data from 2018) that the number is 0.45% which seems ridiculously low to me. I probably read the data incorrectly.
But in all my years of hosting, I’ve only had one person ask if they could plug in their car.
The percentage is low but it’s growing quickly. If you are in a position to offer a charging station it seems like a good way to attract guests, and a kind of guest I find appealing. It sounds perfect for the TheRock’s listing.
Thanx. I will definitely need to check that out when I’m on my laptop!
I have a Plug-in Hybrid EV (Chevy Volt) and am guessing that the 0.45% is for purely electric so not PHEVs.
I installed one in my house for me and offer it in Airbnb and several charging apps. I haven’t had anyone use it except a friend who I had asked to supervise my self install since he had already done his own.
I just had a guest ask me if the can charge the vehicle through the power point. As this is new to me, do we wear the cost for them changing their vehicle. I have no idea as how much this will cost me.
yes, I would do it as a vineyard destination. People often have to drive long distances when doing wine tours, and i’ve noticed here in the Adelaide Hills (australia) there are a few places that offer EV charging. At least during the day you have a chance to use solar power as well.
I’m curious how many STR owners would be willing to monetize their Electric vehicle charger if given the opportunity? There are government mandates that will drive up the number of EVs on the road. I don t want to put a big price tag on my renters but I do not feel that owners should have to pay for the increased energy usage. I’m curious what everyone thinks.
