Four Level 2 Charging Ports near Baltimore Inner Harbor
Baltimore’s Inner Harbor has many attractions that bring people downtown. There is the National Aquarium, Port Discovery Children’s Museum, Maryland Science Center, and many restaurants and other attractions. If you need a place to plug in while visiting, there are four new charging ports at the Harbor Park Garage at 55 Market Place.
I stopped in to the garage to check out the two new ChargePoint CT-4000 series EV charging stations on the purple level near the garage office. I spoke with the manager and she was excited about the new stations. She said that they were originally scheduled to be installed in April but they waited until after July 1, 2014 in order to take advantage of the Maryland EVSE rebate program. The manager also said that they plan to add more charging stations on other levels of the garage in the future if there is enough demand. So far, only one car at a time has been seen charging but they haven’t advertised the availability of the stations yet. They plan to paint the parking spots green within the next few weeks.

Parking rates are $13.00 after 5:00 PM and weekends 6:00 AM to 10:00 PM. You may be able to find discount coupons online. The charging stations are free but you need a ChargePoint card.
There are two entrances to the garage, one on Market Place next to the McDonald’s and another on E. Lombard St. on the southeast corner of the building.
