City of Annapolis Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Infrastructure Grows To Support Consumer Demand 

 

Annapolis, MD (May 6, 2021) – The City of Annapolis is actively enhancing Electric Vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure at locations around the City in order to serve residents and visitors who choose to invest in greener transportation options. 

 

The City’s work involves partnerships with private companies, public utilities and other government agencies. For example, a partnership with Baltimore Gas and Electric (BGE) provides charging units that are installed and maintained by BGE at no cost to the City or taxpayers. Customers pay for charging via an app. BGE charging locations include Pip Moyer Recreation Center and  Gott’s Court Garage. Anne Arundel County has installed chargers at public library locations on West Street and at the Eastport Branch, a location that is convenient for residents but is not in City limits. 

 

Most of the locations include at least one Direct Current Fast Charger (DCFC) which can charge an EV battery from zero to 80 percent in 20 to 40 minutes. Level Two chargers (L-2’s), the most commonly found units, are used to charge for longer periods of time, for example, to charge a vehicle for several hours or overnight.  L-2’s can be used simultaneously by two vehicles.

 

Mayor Gavin Buckley said, “climate change and rising sea levels are a critical issue for Annapolis. As a City we should be doing everything we can to support consumer decisions toward green choices.” 

 

Jacqueline Guild, Deputy City Manager for Resilience and Sustainability, said that the City is pursuing EV chargers at neighborhood locations where residents make a request to the City. These chargers will go through all permit approval processes. She added that a goal of the program overall is to provide diverse and convenient charging locations and work with all partners to provide the necessary infrastructure for residents and visitors who want to buy electric. 


The chart below indicates the charging stations available or in development in the City of Annapolis. Please note that other charging stations, including those at private businesses for the exclusive use of patrons or employees, are not included in this list.
