Hampton Inn & Suites Unveils Electric Car Charging Stations

Nov 21, 2011 11:49AM

With the help of EcoTechnologies, Inc., a handful of forward-thinking businesses and municipalities are leading the charge to bring electric vehicles to the Suncoast.

By installing charging stations in their parking lots, businesses like Hampton Inn & Suites at Sarasota/Bradenton-Airport plan to attract more of the zero-emissions vehicles to our community. The charging stations are designed to accommodate electric vehicles (EV’s) as well as plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. Today’s plug-in EVs typically do not require gasoline, but recharge their large on-board batteries with electricity. The typical result is an efficiency of over 100 miles per gallon, a two-fold increase over conventional hybrids.

Those interested in the future of electric vehicles are encouraged to attend the unveiling of the new charging stations at Hampton Inn & Suites Sarasota/ Bradenton-Airport, located at 975 University Parkway in Sarasota, on Wednesday, November 2. A ribbon-cutting will be held at 4:30pm, during which guests can see the latest electric vehicles plugging in, followed by a reception inside the hotel from 5pm to 7pm.
