A report was released today that contained this map associated with a description of the Maryland electric Vehicle Infrastructure Program (eVIP). The eVIP program, announced last April, is a $1 million competitive grant meant to seed private investment in the build-out of a statewide fast charging network.
At the time it was announced, the network was proposed to encourage Interstate travel and extend as far west as Deep Creek Lake in Garrett County. However, this map shows only two sites west of Howard County and no sites west of Hagerstown.
The grant program is administered by the Maryland Energy Administration (MEA) with participation of the Maryland Departments of Environment (MDE) and Transportation (MDOT) and Maryland Clean Cities Coalition.
I am seeking additional details, including the addresses of the sites chosen. I will report updates as I learn them.
