A new DC Fast Charger is now open at the Royal Farms store at 1114 Route 3/Crain Hwy in Crofton, Maryland.
This station is an Efacec QC50 dual CHAdeMO and SAE Combo Fast Charger and is a welcome addition to the growing number of Fast Chargers that are helping to facilitate electric vehicle travel throughout the state of Maryland.
Over 15 Royal Farms locations in Maryland now have DC Fast Chargers. Most of them were installed as part of the $1,000,000 Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Program (EVIP) grant announced by the Maryland Attorney General in April, 2014. This public-private partnership is administered by the Maryland Energy Administration and grant awardees must contribute at least half of the cost and comply with other guidelines.
The station is on the ChargePoint network and is free for the first 30 days. Thereafter it will cost $0.29 per kWh with $3.50 minimum.
