They plan to expand the program internationally in the coming year without specifying any market.
Hilton says they will provide the charging stations for free to hotel owners and that the only associated cost will be “installation and electricity usage”.
Tesla already offers a “Destination Charging” program where it offers the stations for free to restaurants and hotels in order for Model S owners to charge once they arrive at their destinations, hence the name of the program. It looks like Hilton will simply be using this program offered by Tesla, but they will also offer level 2 charging through GE’s Current business.
