South Okanagan hotel offers electric car charging system for guests

The Coast Oliver Hotel installed two new Tesla charging stations

As part of the Coast Oliver Hotel’s work to be environmentally friendly, two new Tesla electric vehicle charging stations have been installed for guests.

“There is a demand for this type of service and we believe it is an important investment,” says Rajat Kadiyan, the manager of the hotel. “Area 27 has been a boon to the local economy and an influx of luxury car enthusiasts coming into town meant the charging stations and additional security measures were a necessity at the Coast Oliver Hotel.”

The new Tesla systems are compatible with most electric cars, and will charge up to full in 75 minutes. The installation of the new charging stations also comes with new security systems for the hotel and parking, to better protect guests’ property.

The Coast Oliver Hotel held its official grand opening a year ago. The hotel was assembled in nine months through the use of modular construction techniques. With the installation of the charging stations, the hotel joins a network of locations throughout the valley that help make driving electric vehicles more convenient.
