Electric car charging station opens in Baltimore, O'Malley wants 65 running by June

ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Electric car drivers can now "fill their tanks" at a charging station in Baltimore. A public charging station for electric cars opened Thursday in the city's Mount Royal neighborhood, joining stations at the Community College of Baltimore County campus in Catonsville and at a Westminster shopping center. The Maryland Energy Administration has floated $500,000 in grants to help build 65 stations by June. Meanwhile, the House of Delegates passed a proposal last week by Gov. Martin O'Malley to give tax credits to anyone who installs electric car charging equipment. The bill is awaiting a vote in a Senate committee.SOURCEGreenfield reporter
