RV Parks Act as EV Charging Hot Spots
RV parks have found themselves at the forefront of the EV charging market. With a ready supply of 50 amp, 240-volt charging stations meant for powering parked RVs, the campgrounds have become a beacon to EV drivers looking for a boost.
A few parks around DC and one in California have begun reaching out to the new customer demographic, some even installing dedicated EV charging stations to keep the existing plugs open for their RV customers. The park owners have appreciated the new business. In the four hours it takes to charge an EV at their stations, the drivers buy snacks and utilize the campground, creating more revenue for the parks.
The National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds will soon launch a website that maps which of its members welcome EVs and hopes that more parks will embrace this new business venture.
