BALTIMORE, MD (September 27, 2013) - Maryland Department of the Environment Deputy Secretary Kathy Kinsey and Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, along with partners from BITH Energy and General Motors officially opened two electric vehicle charging stations at the War Memorial Plaza today. The stations are the most recent additions to the City's electric charging stations and the first to be placed on a highly traveled public street in Baltimore. Both chargers provide a "level 2," 240-volt quick charge. The spaces are open to the public. While visitors must pay for the parking spot, vehicle charging is free.

The event also recognized National Plug-in Day (September 28 and 29), a nationwide celebration to heighten public awareness about the availability and benefits of choosing electric and hybrid vehicles.
