The Churchill Court Hotel (CCH) in Oxfordshire, located in the heart of the beautiful Cotswolds, has installed two Optimus EV Chargers that offer guests and EV owners a convenient way to recharge their vehicles while staying at the hotel or visiting the local area. These chargers are unique for hotel charging as they are fully reservable and users can tell they are fully functional before reserving them.
Reservable EV charging: A first of its kind for hotel car parks
The chargers are fully reservable for hotel guests, Winstons Café visitors, local business park EV owners, and train station parkers (4 mins away) making them in high demand as more and more people discover them. The hotel owner, Y. Tsang, recognised this demand after multiple requests from people booking and turning up at the hotel with EVs (and little/no charge) and decide to look for a reliable charging solution for the hotel.
With the installation of the Optimus EV Chargers at The Churchill Court, EV owners can recharge their vehicles without having to worry about finding a local charging station or facing the issue of an out-of-order charger. This feature is a first of its kind for hotel car parks, making The Churchill Court stand out as an innovative and leading the way for destination charging rather than the expensive on route ‘rapid’ chargers people have had to rely on when not near their home chargers.
Convenient and reliable EV charging
The Optimus EV Charger by Go Zero Charge was chosen for its reliability and heartbeat sensor that ensures perfect working order every 60 seconds. This technology provides EV owners with a dependable charging experience, and if there are any issues, the Go Zero Charge team is always on hand to help.
Generating additional revenue for the hotel.
Installing the Optimus EV Chargers has also given The Churchill Court an opportunity to generate additional income. With an average utilisation rate of 39% between the two chargers, The Churchill Court could generate up to £50,000 of profit over the next five years. EV owners who recharge their vehicles pay for the electricity used plus 10p per kWh, allowing The Churchill Court to pay for the EV chargers lease and generate a significant profit over the years to come. This offers a win-win situation for both the EV owners and the hotel.
A happy EV customer.
“The Churchill Court Hotel’s Optimus EV Chargers are a game-changer for our EV customers. Not only do they offer reliable and convenient charging, but the fact that they are fully reservable is a unique feature that I have not seen anywhere else.”
“Being able to guarantee that a customer can recharge their car whilst staying at the hotel or visiting the area is a huge relief to them, and the additional revenue generated for the hotel ensures that we will continue to offer this service in the future. Overall, I’m very impressed with the Optimus and how it works and also Go Zero Charge, they have been a pleasure to work with.”Y.Tsang, Churchill Court Hotel Owner.
