Inovis Energy and Bally’s Plug In New Electric Vehicle Charging Stations at Bally’s Twin River Lincoln Casino Resort
LINCOLN, RHODE ISLAND, OCTOBER 19, 2021 – Visitors to Bally’s Twin River Lincoln Casino Resort will experience the first of many progressive changes with the arrival of 10 new premium parking spaces equipped with Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations at the property’s North entrance. Installed in partnership with Inovis Energy of Marlborough, MA, both Level 2 and DC fast charging (DCFC) equipment are available in preferred parking areas which guests are able to utilize during their stay at Bally’s Twin River.
An Electrifying Partnership
“The installation of EV charging stations at Bally’s Twin River demonstrates the casino’s dedication to environmental awareness as well as its strong interest to provide a valuable amenity to their patrons,” said Brad Hinkley, Business Development Director at Inovis Energy. “Inovis is pleased to partner with a reputable organization such as Bally’s. We are impressed with their commitment to the environment and their customers.”
According to Paul Juliano, Vice President of Operations for Bally’s, the installation of charging stations demonstrates the company’s commitment to meet its own sustainability goals while at the same time, assist the State in achieving its own stated zero carbon emissions goal by 2050. “We often make amenity decisions based on expected receptivity and value to our guests as well as how effective they may be in the furtherance of our sustainability goals. In this instance, the installation of these electric chargers achieves both of those objectives.”
Offsetting the Costs of Electric Vehicle Charging Stations
Partial funding for the project was provided through National Grid’s Make-Ready Program which funds up to 100% of the cost to bring electricity from the transmission lines to the equipment site. National Grid also provided a material rebate for the level 2 and DCFC chargers. Inovis Energy is a Lead Charging Station Installer (CSI) with National Grid and was able to maximize the rebate.
Another funding source was Electrify Rhode Island. Administered by the Rhode Island Office of Energy Resources (OER), the program seeks to make more charging stations accessible to Rhode Island drivers. Inovis qualified this project for the program’s maximum per-site incentive of $50,000.
