Four Seasons Hotel Cairo at The First Residence
has installed an electric car charging station.
The charging station works with a variety of
vehicles, such as plug-in electric vehicles and hybrids. For a
full-battery, vehicles get charged for eight straight hours,
however a two-hour charging session is enough for 500-kilometre
(310 mile) drive.
“We pride ourselves as the first hotel in Egypt
to install an electric car-charging station," said Mahmoud ElKeiy,
the hotel's General Manager. "It is essential we protect the
environment, which not only will save gas emissions and energy but
it will also empower our guests to live sustainably, and become a
valuable convenience for them to use during their stay with us."
Egypt has made headway in working towards
a more eco-friendly economy. The country has one the world's
biggest solar panel and wind-turbine farms, and the government has
recently reported that it is looking into building its first
locally-produced electric car.
