EV Charger Installation throughout Maryland

EV Charger Installation MarylandEnergy efficiency: that is the name of the game nowadays. Consumers are now more conscious than ever before about the effects their devices have on the environment, whether it is their refrigerator, air conditioner, or, of course, their car.

With America’s newfound respect for the environment as well as soaring oil prices, it is no wonder that electric vehicles – “EVs” – are quickly gaining popularity amongst consumers. EVs include plug-in hybrids, extended range electric vehicles, and fully electric vehicles. These automobiles represent a step in our country’s mission to reduce petroleum dependence and enhance environmental stewardship. This is why President Barack Obama called for putting one million EVs on the road by 2015. So how close are we to achieving this goal?

With 2015 just a few short months away, total EV sales in the United States are around 260,000, but these vehicles are steadily growing in popularity. While total EV sales in 2014 represent less than 1% of total vehicle sales, EV sales are up 35% over 2013.

Plans to Increase EV Charger Installation throughout Maryland

One hindrance to reaching the 1 million EV milestone is the lack of charging stations across the nation, even in areas with high population density. But this is quickly changing. There were just 3,300 EV charging stations in 2011. By the end of 2013, there were more than 19,000 and this number is steadily increasing along with EV sales.

Currently, California leads the way with 6,239 public and private charging stations, six times as many as New York and more than three times as many as Texas. And what about Maryland, who at last count had an estimated 3,000 electric vehicles? There are currently only about 700 public charging stations in the Washington DC-Baltimore area.

“Electric vehicles are the wave of the future,” said Maryland Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler.

This is one reason the state recently announced a $1 million public-private grant program to build a statewide network of Level 3 fast-charge EV charging stations, stretching from Garrett County to Ocean City to Southern Maryland and beyond.

“This initiative will enable current and future EV owners to use their cars more often, foster job growth in Maryland, keep Maryland money in Maryland and help achieve Maryland’s long-term air quality goals by reducing greenhouse gas emissions,” said Gansler.
