The City of Rockville held a ribbon-cutting ceremony of two new electric vehicles chargers on Vinson St.

Per the news release: Rockville is taking steps to meet the growing demand for electric vehicle chargers with the launch of new EV charging stations at location across the city.

Pepco officials joined members of Rockville’s Mayor and Council and city staff April 15 for a ribbon-cutting of the two chargers on Vinson Street adjacent City Hall.

Additional Level 2 on-street chargers have been installed in Fallsgrove, with three chargers at 312 Prettyman Drive, and near the Twinbrook Metro station, with four chargers at 1800 Bouic Ave.

The next step in the city’s partnership with Pepco is to add a DC fast charger at Thomas Farm Community Center, 700 Fallsgrove Drive, where two Level 2 chargers and one DC fast charger already exist, and four Level 2 chargers at Mattie J.T. Stepanek Park, 1800 Piccard Drive.

These public chargers will be integrated into a public charging network managed and maintained by Pepco. The Maryland Public Service Commission approved this pilot utility charging program and sets the rates for charging. Learn more about the network and find charging locations.

Rockville is developing the city’s first EV readiness plan. The plan will help identify ways the city can work with county, state and federal programs to better facilitate a rapid adoption of electric vehicles and meet a growing demand for charging. Find the EV Readiness Plan.

Electric vehicles cost less to operate, produce no exhaust, improve air quality and health, and will help the Rockville achieve goals of its Climate Action Plan. Learn more about the Climate Action Plan.
