Volta Industries, Inc., an industry leader in commerce-centric electric vehicle (EV) charging networks, on June 15 announced it has reached a joint milestone of 100 brand-sponsored, complimentary charging stations located in prime locations across Maryland.

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. Optimizing 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 Gov. 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 Marylanders and visitors alike."
