As a property owner and Airbnb host, you can take advantage of the numerous benefits of installing electric vehicle charging solutions for your guests and renters.
As people are eager to reunite with family and friends after the events of 2020 and 2021 keeping them apart, it's no surprise that some form of safe travel is on nearly everyone's mind. By 2030, EV adoption rates in California are expected to hit 30%. In other words, 1 in 3 drivers in the golden state will be cruising around in a car that needs frequent, overnight access to charging solutions. Learn more about the benefits of adding an electric vehicle charger to your rental space.
Stand out in the sea of Airbnb and Rental listings.
With travel on the rise, guests have plenty of options to choose from when thinking about staying in a short-term or long-term vacation or rental home. As Airbnb hosts, it's important to stand out in the crowded space.
Global tourism suffered its worst year on record in 2020 for obvious reasons. People were confined to their own homes as we navigated our way through it all. Now, with people more anxious to get out of the house than ever, major airlines and public transportation companies are gearing up for a busy year of vacationing and travel.
EV sales forecasts indicate that EV adoption will impact over 30% of California drivers by 2030. This means that the added perk of charging in your space while on vacation will make you stand out as a rental unit.
Attract Airbnb Guests to Your Eco-Friendly Rental Home Through Offering EV Charging.
You can use this environmentally-conscious system for positive marketing campaigns designed to entice new guests to stay at your property. This will bring in clients who are passionate about green energy efforts across the globe.
With the recent UN Climate Crisis report being signed off by every major country in the United Nations as well as being backed by global scientists, there is no time more critical than now to start investing in green energy efforts. This not only makes sense financially, but ethically. Thinking about how to use more eco-friendly energy solutions is the best way to protect our planet and its inhabitants in the decades to come.
Data shows that EV technology is the future of the automotive industry.
Recent figures show that there are over 5.6 million electric vehicles worldwide — a staggering 64% increase (2.2 million EVs) in 2018 saw the total number of EVs rise from 3.4 million to 5.6 million.
According to a recent consumer survey shared on Electrek, 71% of American drivers said they had interest in getting an electric vehicle (EV) at some point; and approximately 1 in 3 drivers surveyed said they would consider getting an EV for their next vehicle purchase or lease.
This means that offering an EV charger on your rental property will open up your customer base to include those using Airbnb's new filter that only shows spaces with one available. Through offering this service, you are allowing yourself to stand out to a much wider market of high-value renters and travelers who would be willing to choose your space over others that do not offer a charger on-site.
Current Events Support Electric Vehicle Adoption Growth at the Local and Federal level
Bloomberg New Energy Finance recently reported that by the year 2040, over half of global passenger automotive sales will come from electric vehicles alone. With President Biden's executive order aiming for 50% of U.S. car sales to be electric vehicles by 2030, there's nowhere to go but up for the EV industry.
In October 2021, Congress also passed a historic infrastructure bill which allocated an estimated $7.5 billion dollars just towards expanding our electric vehicle power grids and infrastructure. Along with hundreds of local and national rebates in place worth up to $12,500 to EV drivers and business owners, there has never been a better time for your Airbnb customers to switch to an electric car.
This is why it is crucial that property owners who plan to rent out their spaces strategically invest in EV charging solutions now in order to stay on top of the rapid increase in demand by renters and consumers nationwide.
