Elec­tric vehi­cle (EV) charg­ing sta­tions have always been on the OES* radar, but have recently been in higher and higher demand. The County recently installed four new EV charg­ing sta­tions at the Elli­cott City cam­pus to serve its employ­ees and res­i­dents. In addi­tion to the new sta­tions, there are eight other charg­ing sta­tions at gov­ern­ment build­ings, five of which are avail­able to the pub­lic. The Ulman admin­is­tra­tion has also pro­moted the use of elec­tric vehi­cles by pur­chas­ing them for County fleet. Here is a video that shows the first charg­ing sta­tions at Ben­dix Road http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dt5C-X7P9c0.

The sta­tions are well used, and in recent months Howard County has received requests for addi­tional charg­ing infra­struc­ture. Stay tuned for more devel­op­ments com­ing in the near future…
