Tesla Destination Charging Station Cape Cod Up and Running at Falmouth Village’s Palmer House Inn
News from Falmouth Village, MA – August 30, 2014
Falmouth Village, MA – When Bill O’Connell, co-owner of the Palmer House Inn in Falmouth Village, MA, heard his guests lament they’d have to drive all the way to Rhode Island to find an efficient charging station for their Tesla electric car, he got charged up! Understanding the conundrum of charging for Tesla electric cars on Cape Cod, he reached out to the innovative car company and was accepted as the first and only Tesla Destination Charging Location Cape Cod for Tesla drivers. A dual charging station was recently installed at Palmer House Inn, so now Tesla owners have a convenient and efficient charging station when they stay at the Palmer House in Falmouth Village, Cape Cod.
Tesla Motors was founded in 2003 by a group of Silicon Valley engineers who set out to prove that electric vehicles could be awesome, according to their website. The Tesla Roadster hit the streets in early 2008 as a sports car that could go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds and travel for 245 miles per charge. Today, the demand for premium Tesla electric cars has skyrocketed with thousands on order directly through the company.
Yet, the issue of charging can be a problem for those who wish to travel longer distances so Tesla created its Destination Charging Location program and Palmer House Inn is among the newest recruits and the only Tesla Destination Charging Station on Cape Cod. Tesla Motors provided the dual charging station equipment to Palmer House Inn and funded a local electrician to install the station to code. Now when Tesla drivers check in to the Palmer House Inn, they can be assured of charging their cars overnight while they enjoy a getaway in Falmouth Village, MA. Charging services are complimentary for Tesla owners staying at the Palmer House Inn.
“I guess you could say we’re charged up about being the first Tesla Destination Charging Location on Cape Cod,” said O’Connell. “We feel we’ve helped to solve the greatest challenge Tesla drivers face; finding a convenient, safe and comfortable place to energize their car for the next leg of their trip. While they sleep in style, they can rest assured they’ll drive away in style, charged for the next leg of the trip,” finished O’Connell.
