New electric car chargers at Island View Casino
There’s a new place for electric cars to charge up in Gulfport.
The Island View Casino Resort has just installed a total of eight new E-vehicle charging ports. Four of the charging stations are now in the south garage and four are located in the north garage next to the casino. The adapters are the first set of Tesla charging stations to be installed in Gulfport.
Island View staff members tell News 25 they’re on a mission to “green up” and want to provide convenience for motorists and hotel guests who drive environment-friendly cars. Margaret Wilcox with Island View Casino said, “It’s good for the environment and people traveling back and forth from Florida to California will be able to stop and stay at Island View and have a place to keep it. It will show them that we’re moving into the future and we’re environmentally friendly.”
Island View will be giving away a brand new Tesla Model X electric SUV Friday, November 24th.
