For Chris Schaeffer, the choice of which hotel is not so much a matter of clean sheets or the quality of the breakfast — it’s where he can find an electric vehicle charger.
It’s “because I’m cheap,” said Schaeffer, who works for a company that maintains airport service vehicles and who travels frequently for the job. “If I get there with one percent charge left, I can get a full battery of fuel, and not pay a thing for it.”
