EVmatch is rolling out a vacation rental EV charging software service to expand EV charging options for travelers.
According to Newsweek, 500,000 Airbnb guests searched for “EV chargers” in host listings in the second half of 2021 alone. Additionally, a recent survey of nearly 1,600 EV charger customers conducted by Enel X found that 81% of respondents stated that access to Level 2 EV charging influences their travel plans, EVmatch says.
EVmatch is announcing its recent release of an EV charging software management platform designed specifically for vacation and short-term rental owners. The software solution allows property owners to easily install a Level 2 charging station, which adds about 25 miles of range per hour, and charge their guests for usage. The flexible software platform also allows property owners to list their charging stations on EVmatch’s nationwide public network when their rentals are not in use. The software is compatible with the Enel X JuiceBox and the Wallbox Pulsar Plus and offers a reservation system, automatic payments processing, and remote control of charging equipment.
