Watch bald eagles while you plug in and charge at Fisherman’s Park at Conowingo Dam on the Susquehanna River.

The Conowingo Hydroelectric Generating Station is capable of generating 572 MW of clean electricity and has been providing electricity to the region since 1928.

Unfortunately when I was there on August 26, 2015, the connectors would not release from the holsters of the ChargePoint charging station. I called customer service and they were not able to release it remotely either. A service ticket is pending.
