TELL US ABOUT YOUR PROPERTY
“Our spacious and modern home is just a short walk from downtown Saugatuck. It is the perfect place to spend the holidays, enjoy the summer and get away from the city with your friends and family!”

WHAT LED YOU TO OFFER EV CHARGING?
Alex’s family does not have an EV…yet. But they’re looking at EVs for their next vehicle. “Smaller towns don’t always have a lot of charging options available, so we want to give our guests a worry-free option to allow them to charge their EV’s overnight. One day charge stations will be so ubiquitous that no one will think twice about traveling with their EV. But until that time, we want to help make it a little bit easier for EV drivers to take a vacation with total peace of mind.”

Regarding sustainability, Alex said: “As small business owners, we try to align our actions with our personal values. We always try to lower our carbon footprint in our own home and jumped at the chance to do the same with our rental house.”

TELL US ABOUT YOUR PARTNERSHIP WITH CONSUMERS ENERGY AND THE INSTALLER
“Consumers Energy was very helpful when we were evaluating this option and I thought their installers were top notch. Our installation was complex, but the crew was extremely professional and did a tremendous job!”

HAVE YOU RECEIVED FEEDBACK ABOUT THE EV CHARGER FROM YOUR GUESTS?
“The first guests to use it thought it was super neat that we had the EV charger right in the garage. We got some new bookings right after the installation, but we need to see how many folks use the charger.”

When you’re ready for a vacation in southwest Michigan, consider bringing the whole family and the EV to this great location with lots of room for fun and relaxation. Just minutes from quaint downtown Saugatuck, this is the perfect place to recharge your soul and your EV during holidays, summer season or just a getaway from the big city!
