Smart energy storage specialist NeoVolta is rolling out a nationwide network of EV charging stations for a US national hotel brand. The initial phase of installations comprises an expected nationwide rollout of NeoVolta batteries in 1,000 EOS Linx charging stations at various hotel chains, gas stations, and convenience stores nationwide over the next three years.

The network rollout is being implemented together with EV solar energy charging station operator EOS Linx, a company which already has 14,000 EV charging stations under contract or MSA.

With EOS charging stations on site, guests at these hotel locations will be able to charge their electric vehicles overnight. The parent company of the brand is one of the world’s largest lodging franchises, with nearly 7,000 hotels. The first such installation of an EOS Charge Station recently took place at a hotel in Nashville.

Through its relationship with EOS Linx, NeoVolta will provide customised energy storage systems and intelligent power management for the EOS charging stations. The clean solar energy stored in the NeoVolta battery can be used to power the charging stations even when the sun isn’t shining. Each EOS Charge Station is also equipped with a minimum of two chargers and a 75-inch digital advertising display.

NeoVolta’s storage solutions are engineered with lithium iron phosphate (LiFe(PO4)) battery chemistry, which is clean, nontoxic, and nonflammable. The residential-focused NeoVolta NV14 is equipped with a solar-rechargeable 14.4 kWh battery system, a 7,680-Watt inverter, and a web-based energy management system with 24/7 monitoring. The system’s 6,000-cycle battery life translates to 16.5 years of useful life, based on a full charge and discharge each day.

California-based NeoVolta has recently installed energy storage systems across the American South and also in the US Territory of Puerto Rico.

“Travellers will enjoy the convenience of charging their electric vehicles with EOS Charge Stations at these hotel locations,” EOS Linx CEO Blake Snider said. “With a reliable, high-performance NeoVolta energy storage battery integrated, each of these charging stations will be ready to go at any time of day, under any conditions.”

“We are thrilled to be the clean energy storage provider for EOS Charge stations at sites across the country,” said Brent Willson, CEO of NeoVolta Inc. “This represents a unique opportunity to serve America’s electric vehicle drivers and introduce them to NeoVolta’s advanced energy storage technology.”
