Four DC Fast Chargers have been installed at the Maryland House Travel Plaza on I-95 near Aberdeen, Maryland. These 50 kW fast chargers can be used by electric vehicles with CHAdeMO and SAE Combo (CCS) connectors including the Nissan LEAF, BMW i3 and Chevy Bolt EV.
The DC Fast Chargers are located on the north side of the building on the west side of the parking lot. As of September 24, 2017 they have not been powered on. The units seem to be operated by Electric Vehicle Institute (EVI) of Baltimore. There is a credit card payment mechanism on each unit but the price to charge is not shown.
Tesla opened eight Supercharger stalls in a separate area of the Travel Plaza parking lot earlier in September. There is also a 32A ClipperCreek J-1772 charging station by the ADA reserved parking spots that was installed by Tesla.
The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration has designated 462 miles of Maryland highways as Alternative Fuel / Electric Vehicle Corridors. I-95 in Maryland is one of the Electric Vehicle Corridors. Having multiple charging stations available will help give drivers the confidence to take their electric vehicles for long trips. Maryland hopes to have fast chargers on all the Electric Vehicle Corridors in every part of the state from I-68 in Western Maryland to US 50 out to Ocean City.
Maryland House is one of the busiest travel plazas in the country, serving nearly 3 million visitors a year.
