EV Charging Stations Added In Maryland
Jan. 27, 2021—Potomac Edison has completed installation of its first four electric vehicle (EV) fast-charging stations in the Maryland area, the company announced in a press release.
Located in Hancock and McHenry, the chargers can provide an 80 percent charge for most vehicles in less than an hour.
The new stations are part of Potomac Edison's EV Driven pilot program, a five-year Maryland Public Service Commission-approved program designed to reduce auto emissions and support a goal to reach 300,000 zero-emission vehicles by 2025. The company will install 59 charging stations over that time in Maryland.
"We're very pleased to have installed our first electric vehicle fast-charging stations in Maryland and excited about the progress we have made in expanding the charging station network," president of FirstEnergy's Maryland operations James A. Sears, Jr said in the release. "We look forward to building on this positive momentum in 2021 as we install additional charging stations across our service territory and continue to support Maryland's efforts toward electric vehicle adoption throughout the state."
