Stone Terrace B&B Deploys Tesla Destination Charging Station


EVANSTON, ILL.—Stone Terrace Bed & Breakfast, a luxury bed and breakfast located in Evanston, Ill., has joined Tesla Motors Destination Charging Program, making it the first in Evanston and first B&B in Illinois to deploy a vehicle charging station on its property.

The installation includes two “pull up and plug in” wall connectors, which add up to 60 miles of range per hour. A universal adapter is available for non-Tesla electric cars. Electric vehicle (EV) owners can leave their vehicles at the charging station while at the beach, shopping or enjoying time as a guest at the property. The EV charging stations will be free to inn guests and at a nominal fee to other EV owners. Each station is self-service and easy to operate.

“We’re consistently looking to integrate conservation strategies at our property and felt Tesla had a well-developed EV charging infrastructure that our guests can rely on,” said Tom and Sue Zipprich, Innkeepers of Stone Terrace. “We are taking another step toward a cleaner, greener and more sustainable environment and helping to reduce Chicago’s carbon footprint.”

Stone Terrace Bed & Breakfast also uses a geo-thermal heating and cooling system to ensure a cleaner and healthier environment.

In 2017, Tesla plans to double its charging network. It currently offers more than 9,000 Destination Charging connectors that replicate the convenience of home charging by providing hotels, resorts, and restaurants with Tesla Wall Connectors.
