Solarius EV Charging Opens At Fairmont Makati


Solarius EV Charging, a sister company of Solarius Energy, announces the launch of a network of public EV charging locations. 

“Solarius EV Charging’s mission is to eliminate range anxiety for EV drivers by building a world-class, nationwide network of ‘destination’ EV charging locations” says Peter Wilson, President and CEO.

Solarius specializes in providing EV drivers with a convenient and cost-effective charging experience as well as financially viable business models for location partners. The target is to have 60 locations energized by end of the first quarter of 2023 and 180 locations by the end of 2023. By 2025, the goal is to reach around 500 locations.

Charging at Solarius is not free, but they do promise a 99.9 percent up-time compared to free-to-use EV chargers. Charging sessions are activated by simply scanning the QR code at each station. The Solarius app is available for download on the App store for iOS and Google Play for Android which provides an enhanced charging experience. EV drivers are presented with the charging costs before initiating the charging session. Payment methods include credit card, Apple Pay, and Google Pay as well as pre-paid plans funded by G-Cash, PayMaya, Western Union, etc.

“We’re delighted that Fairmont Raffles Hotel in Makati is our first location partner in Metro Manila. Accor group is leading the hospitality sector to provide convenient EV charging facilities for its guests and shares Solarius’ vision of accelerating the shift to electric mobility in the Philippines” says Peter Wilson, CEO. Solarius provides free charging stations to qualified location partners and is looking for more hotels and resorts to add EV Charging facilities nationwide. EV drivers can enjoy comfortable stays at conveniently located resorts and hotels while charging their cars overnight.

Raffles Fairmont Hotel Makati’s breakthrough partnership with Solarius is inline with Accor’s sustainability initiative Planet 21.

According to Ms. Aubrey Ada, Raffles Fairmont Hotel Makati’s Hotel Manager, the hotel’s ongoing Planet 21 sustainability and eco-consciousness initiatives also include operating their own bee farm and herb garden, removal of guest-facing single use plastics (packaging, straw, non-reusable key card, water bottle in rooms, etc.), partnering with Plastic Bank Philippines for the recycling and reusing of PET bottles and waste management system to save food and eliminate wastage, among others.

“We are happy to partner with Solarius EV Charging as we share the same vision of promoting clean energy and providing convenience to our EV driving guests. We look forward to launching and setting into motion more sustainability milestones aligned with our Planet 21 thrust”, says Ms. Aubrey Ada.

Solarius also offers EV Charging solutions for condo and apartment property management companies to enable tenants to charge at home. They also offer solar powered EV Charging solutions for private residences and businesses.

Hotels, resorts, condominium property managers, shopping malls, and public parking garages may contact Solarius EV Charging at info [at] solarius.com.ph or +63 949 882 2125 to apply and join the growing network of public EV charging locations for free.
