Rivian, Under Canvas Team Up to Offer Charging Stations at Glamping Resorts

Share this article

Rivian and Under Canvas have teamed up to provide Waypoints charging stations at two of Under Canvas’ safari-style glamping resorts.

According to a release, Under Canvas will be offering Rivian Waypoints charging stations at both the Moab and Lake Powell-Grand Staircase locations. Although the chargers will only be available to guests, they will not be restricted to Rivian owners and are available to other EV owners.

These charging stations are Rivian’s first collaboration with a hospitality company and are part of the 10,000 Waypoints Rivian announced last year, including locations across Colorado’s 42 state parks.

The Waypoints are a generic Level 2 AC charger with J1772 connection with the ability to reach 11.5-kW charging speeds in contrast to the Rivian-specific Level 3 Adventure Network chargers.

Rivian estimates that the Level 2 charger can power between 16 and 25 miles (26 and 40 kilometers) per hour into its battery packs, meaning that the Waypoints can be used as an overnight charging solution, but not a quick stop.

The move is the next stage in Under Canvas’ goal to promote carbon emission reduction. The company also aims to put eco-friendly facilities like low-flow toilets, solar power, and pull-chain showers. The hospitality company has designed its resorts to reflect the terrain around them and promote open, green spaces within their boundaries.

Under Canvas’ Moab and Lake Powell, glamping resorts will begin operations in March, and the plans are for Rivian Waypoint charging stations to be ready for the day of opening. In conjunction with this launch, Under Canvas will offer free charging starting from the opening date until Earth Day, April 22. After that, guests can pay for charging using the Rivian app.
