The milestone in Maryland illustrates how state and local governments can successfully work with private entities to support the networked charging infrastructure necessary to enable the growing adoption of EVs.

Volta Charging equipment incorporates marketing messaging on the charging station’s screens which allows the public to utilise the chargers at no cost. The company has received financial assistance for 64 chargers at 22 locations throughout the state and counting via MEA’s Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) Rebate Program, which has helped incentivise the deployment of over 5,000 residential and commercial charging stations across the state since 2014.

Reliable and convenient charging infrastructure will be needed to support a shift in consumer mobility, a shift that underscores the importance of creating widespread, universal access to alternative energy sources. Optimising charger deployment for the grid, the transportation system, site hosts, and consumers is more essential now than ever before.

“This public-private partnership with Volta Charging and Giant is yet another testament to Maryland's standing as a national leader in transportation electrification” said Maryland Governor Larry Hogan. “Expanding access to electric vehicle charging infrastructure is critical to achieving both our emissions reduction and EV deployment goals, while serving the needs of Marylander's and visitors alike.”

Ira Kress, President of Giant Food, added that the company now has 74 Volta kiosks installed at Giant Food locations across its market area and that as part of its continued sustainability commitments, the company is furthering its actions to reduce carbon emissions through its business practices and key partnerships.
