EV charging software provider, EVmatch has unveiled its vacation rental EV charging software platform service to expand EV charging options for travelers.
Vacation rental EV charging is an amenity that is becoming increasingly attractive for a growing number of travelers.
“We are proud that this vacation rental product supports EV drivers to fully embrace an electric lifestyle and advances sustainability within the hospitality industry,” said Heather Hochrein, Founder and CEO of EVmatch.
500,000 Airbnb guests searched for “EV chargers” in host listings in the second half of 2021 alone.
Additionally, a recent survey of nearly 1,600 EV charger customers conducted by Enel X found that a staggering 81% of respondents stated that access to Level 2 EV charging influences their travel plans.
With summer road tripping in full swing, EVmatch is thrilled to announce its recent release of an EV charging software management platform designed specifically for vacation and short-term rental owners.
The EV Charging software solution allows property owners to easily install a Level 2 charging station, which adds about 25 miles of range per hour and charge their guests for usage.
The flexible EV Charging software platform also allows property owners to list their charging stations on EVmatch’s nationwide public network when their rentals are not in use.
The EV Charging software platform is compatible with the Enel X JuiceBox and the Wallbox Pulsar Plus and offers a reservation system, automatic payments processing, and remote control of charging equipment.
Early EV adopters often recall the challenges of road tripping in an EV. Family trips and vacations were often stressful, requiring extensive planning, range calculations, and searching for outlets at hotels and guest homes.
Luckily, this is all quickly changing due to massive investments in fast charging stations along highways through the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program and the buildout of Level 2 destination charging stations at lodging destinations and vacation rentals.
