Potomac Edison To Bring Electric Vehicle Charging to MD



Potomac Edison (a subsidiary of FirstEnergyCorp), a Bronze Corporate Partner, will begin the Launch Electric Vehicle Charging Station Pilot Program.

The pilot program will install electric vehicle charging stations later this year and offer rebates to residential and non-residential charger installations. It has been approved by the Maryland Public Service Commission and will take place over the next 5 years.

Program Goals:

  • Install more than 50 charging stations
  • Include 9 “fasting charging’ stations
  • Offer rebates of up to $300 for residential customers of Potomac Edison for installing the charging station at their home
  • Rebates also will be available for charging stations at multifamily properties
  • Support a state-wide effort toward reaching 300,000 zero-emission vehicles on the road by 2025
  • Help Maryland utilities evaluate the benefits of EV charging deployment while remaining cost-effective for customers

According to the Press Release:

We’re excited about the opportunity to support Maryland’s efforts toward electric vehicle adoption and expanding the charging station network, which is an important step toward a cleaner, healthier environment. Our expertise at building electrical infrastructure will help position Maryland as a leader in EV technology. We look forward to partnering with state officials to ensure our EV charging station program produces long-term benefits as we continue providing safe, reliable and affordable service to our customers.
