An EV (electric vehicle) may save resources and hold down pollution but it requires a vast network of charging stations to become practical enough to replace the millions of gasoline and diesel propelled cars and trucks on the road today. That infrastructure is being implemented slowly but with great care to be available where needed. Public areas, such as railroad stations and shopping mall parking lots are investing in the necessary technology. Hospitality locations, hotels, and restaurants especially, are prime places to put charging equipment.
Noodoe, a leader in EV charging technology, has just completed installation of ten S1000 EV charging stations at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel, one of L.A.’s most historic landmarks. As electric cars become commonplace, guests are starting to choose where they stay based on the presence of EV charging. Hotels no longer see EV charging as a perk but as a necessity and they are filling this accelerating customer demand with solutions as advanced as their vehicles.
The hotel has many historic firsts, from hosting the Academy Awards, to JFK’s 1960 nomination speech, to welcoming the Beatles in ’64 and housing the Olympic Committee in 1984.
All forecasts indicate electric cars are rapidly growing from niche to common. Predictions are that sales of electric vehicles will increase from a record 1.1 million worldwide in 2017 to 11 million in 2025 and then to 30 million in 2030 as the price of manufacturing the vehicles continues to decline.
At the heart of the commercial Noodoe EV Charging Station is a cloud-based OS (operating system) that serves as its brain. The OS seamlessly taps into a business’s existing electricity supply bandwidth, manages the charging experience for customers, and allows them to use any form of payment at the pump, including credit cards, Apple or Google Pay. The OS also provides management functions that empower owners to configure pricing, modify peak hours, and monitor charging while supervising the entire charging infrastructure.
