QUEBEC - Group Germain Hotels is proud to announce that all electric vehicle (EV) enthusiasts will literally be able to recharge their batteries while getting a great night's sleep at its Le Germain and Alt Hotels across the country. The independent Canadian hoteliers are the first to roll-out the new Tesla Destination Charging program thereby providing its guests access to a private network of over 20 EV charging stations capable of delivering a full charge in 4 to 8 hours at its many hotels.
"Sustainability and innovation have always been top of mind for us at Group Germain Hotels. Not only do we always incorporate eco-friendly features into the design of our properties but we also support and encourage like-minded guests and organizations. Tesla is an industry leader in both fields making this partnership a natural extension of our guest experience", says Jean-Yves Germain, co-president of Group Germain Hotels. "Our EV-driving guests can now have peace of mind knowing that they can get a full charge overnight or while attending on-site meetings. As a Tesla driver myself, I am thrilled to be able to recharge at almost every one of our hotels and I look forward to one day taking an emission-free road trip from coast to coast."
Universal and Tesla charging stations ranging from 60 to 100 amps are currently available at Le Germain and Alt Hotels in Quebec City, Montreal and Toronto. The Alt Hotel in Halifax currently has a universal charging station that is connected to the VERnetwork. Additional stations will be deployed in Calgary the new year.
"Tesla Motors is pleased to partner with Group Germain Hotels and provide accessible charging for patrons traveling with Model S and other electric vehicles. Their commitment to sustainability is a quality that resonates with our customers, and we're excited they will have extra charging options as they explore eastern Canada," says Tesla spokesperson, Will Nicholas.
