Pepco joined City of Mt. Rainier Mayor Malinda Miles and the Maryland Energy Administration to celebrate the installation of three new Level 2 electric vehicle charging stations, part of the hundreds to be installed by Pepco in Prince George’s County as part of the company’s EVSmart program. These new electric vehicle charging stations are available for public use at 35th St. in Mt. Rainier.
Pepco’s EVsmart program was launched in 2019 to bring public charging networks to Prince George’s and Montgomery counties and provide incentives for customers making the switch to this cleaner and more efficient form of transportation. Information about how the program works and how residents and municipalities can get involved can be found here: Pepco - EVsmart. Pepco is excited to work with local governments to install more charging stations on public property across the company’s service area.
Pepco has extensive EVsmart plans in Prince George’s County. Recently, four new charging stations were energized at the Equestrian Center in Upper Marlboro. Additionally, there are five stations in Greenbelt that are currently scheduled to be completed and construction is planned for sites in Capitol Heights, Forest Heights and Oxon Hill. EVsmart installations in Prince George’s County will be completed by the end of 2023.
At the event held on March 22, Mayor Miles and representatives from Pepco, among others, gave remarks about the significance of this installation before cutting a ribbon.
Mayor Malinda Miles,“I want to say to Pepco and to Maryland Energy Administration, we have done amazing things together with electric infrastructure, and we’re cutting down on energy costs.” Will Ellis, Pepco region vice president, “Pepco is excited to expand this program to help our communities benefit from this clean energy transformation. I want to thank Mayor Miles for making Mt. Rainier the first Prince George’s County community to benefit from these charging stations.”
