Electric Vehicle charging stations are being installed in the parking lot of Walmart in Columbia, Maryland. There’s a permit to install 12 charging stations and 3,000 Amp service at the Walmart at 6405 Dobbin Rd, Columbia, MD according to records from Howard County Department of Inspections, Licenses & Permits.
Trenching has begun and equipment is already on site ready to be installed. Crates are labeled “CHAdeMO” and “CCS.” This is likely going to be an Electrify America site. Walmart is a partner with Electrify America although Columbia Maryland is not mentioned on their map of planned locations.
Thanks @BraveRock for the tip. Stay tuned for updates.

CCS & CHAdeMO Chargers Part of Maryland AFIP Grant Award
EV drivers have waited years for DC Fast Chargers to be installed farther west along the Interstate in Western Maryland. It looks like a pair of chargers are about to arrive in the town of Hancock, about 25 miles west of Hagerstown.
The Maryland Energy Administration (MEA) awarded grants to install DC Fast Chargers in the state under the Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Program (AFIP) for fiscal year 2018. Included in that award is funding for a pair of Fast Chargers at the Western Maryland Rail Trail Parking Lot in Hancock, MD. On Sunday, January 6th, I was out that way and decided to have a look. I found two recently poured pads of concrete with conduit sticking up in the north-east corner of the lot. It looks like construction has begun. Read More …

Early this morning, the Tesla Navigation map indicated that the National Harbor Supercharger was out of service. By 10 AM, the pin for National Harbor had disappeared completely and by this afternoon, National Harbor had been deleted from the Supercharger list on Tesla’s website.
There now stands a bank of 12 dark stalls where a day earlier had been active with Tesla cars coming and going. This Supercharger site went from Ribbon Cutting to decommissioning within 15 months.
In October, National Harbor announced that the Tesla parking lot would be closing. The lot was said to have been sold in order to build a hotel. We were assured that the Superchargers would be relocated somewhere else within National Harbor.

Tesla plans to build a Supercharging Station at Tysons Corner Center according to documents submitted to Fairfax County, Virginia and obtained by PlugInSites through a Virginia Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.
Plans show ten charging stalls located on the west side of Garage B on Level 1. The garage is near Bloomingdale’s at the corner of Rt. 7/Leesburg Pike and International Drive.
The site drawings show that the installation will have the new 72 kW “urban” style Superchargers. Tysons may be the first in the Washington, DC area with these, more compact, charging posts. The urban Superchargers were introduced in September, 2017 and are designed to occupy less space and be easier to install, especially in city parking garages. Read More …
