Electric vehicle (EV) charging software and technology provider, EVmatch, has announced the release of its vacation rental EV charging software service to expand EV charging options for travelers.
Vacation rental EV charging is becoming increasingly attractive to many travelers. In fact, according to Newsweek, 500,000 Airbnb guests searched for an “EV charger” in the host listing in the second half of 2021 alone. In addition, a recent survey of nearly 1,600 EV charger consumers by Enel X found that a staggering 81 percent of respondents said, that access to Level 2 EV charging will affect their travel plans. With the summer road in full swing, EVmatch is pleased to announce its latest release of an EV charging software management platform designed specifically for vacation and short-term rental owners.
The software solution allows owners to easily install a Level 2 charging station, which adds 25 kilometers of range per hour and charges their guests for use. The flexible software platform also allows homeowners to list their charging stations on EVmatch’s national public network when their rental is not in use. The software is compatible with Enel X JuiceBox and Wallbox Pulsar Plus and provides a backup system, automatic payment processing, and remote control of charging devices.
“We are proud that this vacation rental product supports EV drivers to fully embrace an electric lifestyle and advances sustainability within the hospitality industry,”
-Heather Hochrein, Founder and CEO of EVmatch.
First-time EV adopters often remember the challenges of driving on the road in an EV. Family trips and vacations were often complicated, requiring extensive planning, extensive reading, and finding bargains in hotels and guesthouses. Fortunately, all this is rapidly changing thanks to huge investment in charging stations on highways through the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program and the construction of level 2 charging stations at residential areas and holiday destinations.
EVmatch is committed to increasing EV adoption by making charging easy, reliable, and accessible. EVmatch operates a nationwide peer-to-peer EV charging network, enabling individuals and business owners to rent private charging stations, earn money and support their communities.
