Following Maryland Governor Wes Moore’s announcement that the state has received $15 million in funding for electric vehicle charging stations, Montgomery County Executive has shared the county is already home to more than 25,000 registered EV owners- more than any other County in Maryland.
The latest round of funding from the U.S. Department of Transportation will pay for 58 electric vehicle charging stations across Maryland. Elrich noted in his weekly update that Montgomery County has added 16 new electric vehicle charging ports to garages and parking lots in Silver Spring, Bethesda and Wheaton- bringing the total number of EV charging ports in County facilities to 64.
Per Elrich, “This new funding source will help expand those efforts, so EV ownership becomes more of a possibility for thousands of families. Here is a site where you can locate all the charging ports in the County’s EV infrastructure program.
We have come a long way since installing our first public charging port for EVs in 2015. Our efforts, and those of our partners, in providing renewable energy stations for public use helped fuel the high level of interest EV vehicles. We encourage people to sign a pledge to consider an EV when making their next car purchase. By signing up, you can access information about local, State and Federal rebates that can apply to a new EV purchase.
More than 1,100 people have joined the County’s EV Purchasing Co-op group and we anticipate that the list will continue to grow. You can learn more by visiting the Zero-Emission Vehicles website.”
