EV Charging Stations
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…
