PGA National Resort & Spa launched its new Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) charging stations with a reception on Oct. 7 (6 – 7:30 p.m.)
The South Florida destination is the first in the area to install the Eaton electric vehicle charging stations for electric and hybrid cars. Its parking lot will be outfitted with three total charging stations - two Eaton Commercial Level II Chargers and one Eaton DC Level III Quick Charger.
The DC Quick Charging unit is capable of fully charging a vehicle in 40 minutes or less, while the two Level II chargers can full charge an electric vehicle within a few hours. Designed to increase travel radius and reduce range anxiety, the DCQC charging infrastructure supplies a quick connection to the grid for drivers on the go with a fast direct charge of electricity needed to refill the battery.
PGA National continually invests in sustainable practices with newly updated energy efficient HVAC, guestroom energy management system, water efficiency measures and waste minimization and recycling. Additionally, it is in the process of obtaining golf course certification from the international GEO OnCourse program.
Acknowledging the resort’s effective and sustainable practices, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection designated PGA National Resort & Spa a Florida Green Lodge since 2007. This accolade recognizes lodging facilities in Florida that make a commitment to conserve and protect Florida’s natural resources.
Additionally, Enterprise Rent-A-Car is making it easy for visitors to the PGA National Resort & Spa to try out this new technology by offering an all-electric Nissan LEAF for rental to resort guests.
