EV tracking website Electrek reports LNG Electric is rolling out a plan to install the charging stations at popular hotel brands by 2028 at the latest.
Charging Stations to be Introduced in Midwest and Florida
The company is working with digital infrastructure partner MD7 to identify not only how many chargers should be installed, but where they would be the most efficient for travelers across the United States. LNG is planning to install a combination of Level 2, Level 3, and DC fast charging stations at many popular hotel brands, including Marriott and Hilton.
The first chargers in the network will be installed at hotels in the Midwest, including Illinois and Ohio. Florida will also see some chargers installed at hotel properties. From there, the company’s goal is to place charging stations at enough hotels to represent up to 15% of the U.S. hospitality market.
There’s no word if travelers will earn additional loyalty rewards for charging their EVs at one of the hotels in LNG’s charging network.
EV Charging Stations Among New Amenities to Bring Back Travelers
The new network of electric vehicle charging stations are just another new feature hotels are rolling out to attract travelers back to their properties. While some are going all-out on their room service options, others are partnering with travel providers to keep more flyers in their network.
