SMECO Now Has 9 EV Charging Stations

EV charging station

Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative has completed installation of nine local Level 2 electric vehicle charging stations, as of September 15, 2021.

SMECO plans to offer charging stations for electric vehicles throughout Southern Maryland. SMECO has partnered with Greenlots, a subsidiary of Shell New Energies, to install up to 60 charging stations throughout its service area. The first of SMECO’s EV Recharge stations are located in Leonardtown and are operational.

SMECO is working with state, municipal, and local governments to determine locations for the EV Recharge stations. The installations will include Level 2 chargers, which can charge most electric vehicles in a few hours, and direct current fast chargers, which can charge most vehicles up to 80 percent in half an hour.

EV owners can use the Greenlots Mobile App to find the nearest station, start and end charging, easily make payments, and receive real-time notifications.
