Webinar: EV Charging for Condos, Co-ops, and Townhomes
Tuesday, September 6, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Montgomery County’s CCOC (Commission on Common Ownership Communities) along with DEP (Department of Environmental Protection) and Montgomery County GreenBank to hold a seminar on Electric Vehicle Charging stations so you can charge at home.
Montgomery County residents and businesses own an estimated 10,900 electric vehicles and 5,600 plug-in hybrids. Nearly 40 percent of all electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles in Maryland are located within Montgomery County. The Maryland Department of the Environment’s Zero Emission Vehicles Program has set a goal of having 60,000 zero-emission vehicles in the State by 2020 and 300,000 by 2025.
Electric vehicles are coming to Montgomery County, and it’s no surprise why: EVs save money, reduce emissions, and are fun to drive.
Charging at home is one of the biggest benefits of driving electric, making it an important asset for condos, co-ops, and townhomes with shared parking. Multiple communities across the county have installed charging or begun exploring the process.
“As Montgomery County strives to achieve zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2035, providing safe ways to charge while parked on public streets should make it easier for residents to own and operate the electric vehicles that will play an important role in helping us reach that goal,” said Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich.
Join our round table discussion and presentation to learn what you need to install charging in your community:
- What are the benefits of EV charging?
- How many chargers should we install?
- How can we manage shared parking?
- How much does it cost and what incentives and financing are available?
- What should we expect from permitting and construction?
The dates of the seminar will be September 6th from 6 pm to 8 pm or September 11th from 10 am to 12 noon. To register for this zoom event, please follow this link to register.
