Have you noticed any electric vehicle (EV) charging stations that are under construction or have been installed in the parking lots of several County facilities?

These stations are owned, operated and maintained by Baltimore Gas and Electric (BGE) and placed on county-owned property as part of a partnership to expand the EV charging network in Baltimore County. These chargers are part of BGE's EVsmart Program, which also provides customers with rebates, tools and information to go electric. For more details visit the BGE Electric Vehicles information page.

These vehicle chargers are available to people who drive an electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle. Charging a vehicle on these stations does have a cost to users, and BGE’s charging rates are comparable to other public charging options. To use these chargers, you can scan a code on the chargers using the Greenlots mobile app, use a Greenlots RFID card to initiate charge sessions, or pay via credit card by calling 855-900-PLUG (7584). If you have additional questions about this program, email BGE at or call 866-414-1256.

Currently, stations have been installed at the following locations:

  • Essex Park and Ride
  • Randallstown Community Center
  • Meadowood Regional Park
  • Arbutus Library and Senior Center
  • Sollers Multi-Purpose Center
  • Carney Park and Ride
  • Drumcastle Government Center
  • Cockeysville Library

As more chargers are installed, we will add them to the list and provide updates.

The rollout of EV stations by BGE aligns with County Executive Olszewski’s goal to increase the adoption of electric vehicles in Baltimore County and reduce reliance on carbon-intensive energy to combat climate change.
