These high-powered connectors run off of a 240-volt circuit that supplies twice the amperage as a traditional outlet.
At maximum amperage, the connector supplies power at 20kW, adding up to 58 miles of range to a Tesla Model S in one hour.
“We are very excited to add Tesla charging stations here in northern Nevada as part of our on-going efforts as a sustainable resort,” said Dean Parker.
Hotel guests can fully charge their Tesla vehicles in just five hours at the stations. The Model S can travel 265 miles on a single charge – a range that allows Tesla owners to drive between Reno and San Francisco without recharging.
The addition of the Tesla charging stations adds to the Peppermill’s diverse sustainability efforts, which includes utilizing an on-site geothermal aquifer to heat 100 percent of the resort’s domestic water and mechanical heat and the recent installation of energy-saving LED lighting in the resort’s parking lots.
