Downtown Baltimore has eight new EV charging stations with plans to add about a dozen more. In May, the City Board of Estimates agreed to let a Baltimore-based company, Electric Vehicle Institute, Inc., install about 20 charging stations in city-owned parking garages. The agreement allows EVI to install and support the Level 2 charging stations for up to three years at no cost to the City. Now, those stations are beginning to appear. The photo above shows four of the EVI units installed in the Parking Authority of Baltimore City Redwood Street Garage.
The Baltimore City Department of Public Works is coordinating the project to place the stations where there is the most demand. See the six parking locations on the interactive map above. Some of these parking facilities have existing charging infrastructure that will be expanded. Other locations, such as the Marriott Garage at 405 W. Lombard St., will be getting their first charging stations. Initially, they all will be free to use.

Marriott, 405 W. Lombard St. (4 new, 4 total)
