Choice Hotels will bring EV chargers for electric vehicles to Chattanooga

First properties will be in Chattanooga, Atlanta and Nashville

CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – A major hotel chain has picked Chattanooga as one of its first markets to install EV chargers.

Choice Hotels will add the solar-powered chargers to “select” properties, beginning in Chattanooga, Nashville and Atlanta.

The installations will take place in the first quarter of this year.

Choice Hotels is one of the largest hotel franchisers in the world, operating several brands like Comfort, Quality Inn and Clarion.

But they are targeting their upscale properties, like Ascend Hotels.

This is a pilot program with the EOS Linx system that they hope will go nationwide.

“We’re thrilled to bring EOS Charge Stations to select Choice Hotels properties and help fulfill the EV charging needs of drivers,” says Blake Snider, President at EOS Linx. “Choice Hotels properties are often located close to highways, making them ideal locations for EV chargers, and this collaboration brings us one step closer to creating a robust EV charging infrastructure that will help support our nation’s EV growth targets.”

“This is an exciting collaboration that will provide drivers with access to EV chargers while traveling and in the future, potentially uncover new customer engagement opportunities for our 6,000-plus domestic franchised hotels,” says Rick Summa, Vice President of Partner Services at Choice Hotels International. “The ability to provide drivers with this added convenience while also promoting environmentally sustainable practices in the cities our franchisees serve makes this an impactful relationship we are excited to grow.”
