Are you the proud owner of an electric vehicle? now you have another reason to visit The Vineyard!

We now have not one but two EV charging stations that will be used by the hotel’s own electric vehicles, as well as being available to guests visiting the hotel.

On 9 October 2019, Minister of Transport Fikile Mbalula unveiled the charging stations and George Petousis, CEO of Petousis Family Holdings, which owns The Vineyard, reminded the assembled guests that the Petousis hotels have always focused on sustainability and Living Green: “The Vineyard’s initiatives during the past drought led the Cape Town hospitality industry, and our on-going efforts to radically reduce waste along with water and energy consumption have won several awards. We are delighted to be the first hotel in the Western Cape to offer its own AC and DC charging stations for electric vehicles.”

The launch was part of Generation.e’s Electric Vehicle Road Trip Africa*, which aims to inspire transformation to smarter mobility. “The opportunities that smarter mobility can offer to South Africa are endless. Electric vehicles are just one example and we are excited for what the future holds for the country,” said Ben Pullen, CEO at Generation.e.
