The Omni Richmond Hotel has installed the first charging station at a hotel in Richmond. The $2,000 charging station installed at the Omni Hotel has already paid for itself in revenue generated by guests that have selected the hotel based on access to an electric vehicle charging station during their stay.

The first official plug-in and Business Case for Electric Vehicle Charging Stations Forum event hosted by Virginia Clean Cities at the hotel generated a statewide “buzz” about electric vehicle charging stations.
