Here, Pepco Maryland customers can apply for EV charger rebates and explore the company's EV toolkit, which allows customers to learn the basics of EV charging, use a savings calculator to compare the cost of gas versus electric-powered vehicles, view available state and federal tax incentives, and locate local EV dealers. Pepco customers in the District of Columbia also can learn more about the company's efforts to support the transition to cleaner, more efficient electric vehicles, including programs currently under review by the Public Service Commission of the District of Columbia.
In addition, Pepco will launch and operate its own EV charging network in Maryland with the first installations by fall 2019. EV drivers will be able to charge their vehicles at 250 Pepco-owned Level 2 smart chargers or DC Fast Chargers at competitive rates. The chargers will be located throughout Montgomery and Prince George's counties, providing drivers flexibility and the ability to travel across the service area without worry that they will run out of power.
The EVsmart Program fuels progress on Maryland's Air Quality and Chesapeake Bay goals, which include having 300,000 zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) on the road by 2025; currently, less than 20,000 ZEVs are registered in the state.
