USA: DoubleTree by Hilton Portland to Install OpConnect EV Charging Stations

PORTLAND, Ore., May 15, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — OpConnect, LLC, a visionary leader in electric vehicle (EV) charging station technology, announced today the installation of its smart EV charging system in the DoubleTree by Hilton Portland parking facility. The charging stations, supported by the OpConnect wireless communications network, feature high-resolution touch screens designed to deliver superior quality interactive advertising and messaging. These charging stations will operate under a long-term advertising supported agreement. Under the mutually beneficial agreement, both OpConnect and DoubleTree will receive revenue generated as a result of advertising displayed on the charging stations, in addition to usage revenue from EV drivers.

“Installation of EV charging infrastructure by the private sector will be driven by the ability to generate revenue with the charging stations. Our advertising supported model is an excellent way to do that. The management team at the DoubleTree by Hilton Portland has demonstrated not only their commitment to green technologies but also their innovative spirit by partnering with us on this installation,” said Dexter Turner, OpConnect CEO.

“This partnership is a natural fit in the progression of sustainable amenities offered to our guests, neighbors and team members,” said Steve Faulstick, general manager of the DoubleTree. “The nominal fee will ensure that we are able to maintain a long-standing commitment to offering this service to the neighborhood.” The charging stations complement the free covered bicycle parking and complimentary guest bike rentals giving guests and neighbors alternative transportation options when arriving in the Lloyd District.
