Featured Plug In Site – Maryland’s first public charging station?
This charging station is located behind the Element Hotel near Arundel Mills at 7522 Teague Road, Hanover, MD. It is possibly the “first” public charging station in the state of Maryland judging by the Department of Energy’s Alternative Fuels Data Center database. It is assigned ID: 36363 which is the lowest ID number of all the charging stations listed for Maryland. That means it was likely the first charging station added to the database that is located in Maryland.
A unique aspect of this ChargePoint station is that it is 120V Level 1 only. Notice in the photo that there is no J-1772 connector holster on this unit, only the door flap for the 120V outlet. This is the first and only one I’ve seen like this.
