In celebration with Earth Week 2015, we are excited to tell you about the installation of two Electric Vehicle Charging Stations at the Wolf Cove Inn. We’ve partnered with Tesla Motors and Select Registry to provide our guests on-site access to a Tesla Destination Charger and a standard electric vehicle charging station. The two chargers were installed on April 29th, 2015 and look lovely beside the daffodils! We are very please to offer these new amenities for our guests.
Electric Vehicle Charging Stations Align With Wolf Cove Inn Eco-Friendly Operations
At the Wolf Cove Inn we are committed to being friendly to Mother Earth. Like the Earth, we can trace our roots to star dust. So in a way we and Mother Earth are cousins and therefore family. We treat our family with respect. Adding electric vehicle charging stations was a natural fit among a long list of eco-friendly improvements we’ve made in the past year. Improvements include:
- Conversion of laundry to low-energy, low water use commercial washer and dryer
- Replacement of incandescent light bulbs with LEDs such that greater than 75% of Inn lighting is energy efficient
- Replacement of window AC units with high efficiency ductless mini-split HVAC in all guest rooms and first floor public spaces
- Composting of all appropriate kitchen/cooking waste
- An active recycling and returnable program
- and more
Electric Vehicle Charging Stations Press Release
As with all good news, you need to tell folks about it! So we issued a press release today. Here is the text of the release announcing the availability of the two on-site electric vehicle charging stations:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Wolf Cove Inn Teams with Tesla Motors
Tesla Destination Charging and Universal Charging for electric vehicles now offered as new amenity for guests of the Wolf Cove Inn
Poland, Maine – April 30, 2015 – Wolf Cove Inn has teamed up with Tesla Motors to provide an increasingly desirable amenity – Tesla Destination Charging.
Wolf Cove Inn is committed to operating as an environmentally friendly business. The Inn is a Trip Advisor Green Partner for our operational policies and investment in low-energy usage equipment. In that spirit, we are pleased to announce the installation of two electric vehicle charging stations – a Tesla Destination Charging Station and a Clipper Creek Universal Charging Station. With the Inn’s great location in central Maine, the addition of the electric vehicle charging stations now provides access to some of the most beautiful and remote areas of Maine for like-minded, environmentally conscious electric vehicle owners. We are pleased to add electric vehicle charging stations to our growing list of high-end amenities that include Stearns-Foster mattresses, Comphy sheets, Gilchrist & Soames soaps and conditioners, Turkish Towels and Deneen mugs for sipping Carrabassett Roasters coffee.
Wolf Cove Inn joins a rapidly growing network of resorts in Tesla Destination Charging, including more than 160 other Select Registry properties throughout the U.S. This new program provides hotels, resorts, and restaurants around the world with charging equipment, and gives Tesla drivers the freedom to charge wherever they want to travel by replicating the charging convenience owners are accustomed to at home.
“We’re constantly finding new ways to heighten the guests’ experience. This past summer the Inn had a guest arrive driving a Tesla electric car. The best we could offer them was a long extension cord and an outlet. We felt we could do better and when this program came about with Tesla, it was natural for us to take advantage. By combining leading-edge technology and the forward-thinking of Tesla with our commitment to provide outstanding service and offerings, and reducing harmful carbon emissions, we now have the ability to offer guests a seamless and convenient electric vehicle charging station experience during their stay.” said Roy Forsberg, owner of the Wolf Cove Inn.
Tesla’s growing Supercharger network (now 400 stations along frequently-traveled highways) has inspired Model S owners to hit the road in increasing numbers. Owners can drive all day, charging for 30-40 minutes at Superchargers and then stop at night to stay at Wolf Cove Inn, other quality-assured Select Registry properties, and other locations that have installed Tesla High Power Connectors. Tesla’s High Power Wall Connectors add 58 miles of range per hour, topping off Model S’s full 265 miles of range in just a few hours on a single charge.
Select Registry properties and other Tesla Destination Charging locations are hosted on Tesla’s interactive webpage and will soon be GPS located on Model S’ navigation through a free software update sent wirelessly to the car. In coming months, Tesla owners will be able to use the Model S 17” touch screen to easily plan trips and locate the property.
Photographs of the property and chargers are available upon request.
