Delmarva Power charging station opens Downtown

Delmarva Power Senior External Affairs Specialists Renee Sheehy and John Petito, Salisbury City Administrator Julia Glanz, and Deputy City Administrator Andy Kitzrow formally open the utility company’s first EV charging station in Salisbury.

A new Delmarva Power Electric Vehicle Charging Stations is energized and open for charging in Salisbury.

Located in the city’s Parking Lot No. 15 at 218 West Market St, the smart chargers are part of the company’s EVsmart Program, which provides customers with the rebates, tools and information to help them go electric.

Salisbury’s charging station is one of 100 planned charging sites that will be located within Delmarva Power’s service areas within Maryland.

“These new charging stations are part of our efforts to help combat the effects of climate change and provide our customers with new energy services and options to meet their needs,” said Gary Stockbridge, Delmarva Power Region President.

“We know our customers are looking for cleaner transportation options, and these charging stations will help make it easier for them to make the transition,” he said. “We worked closely with our community partners to provide EV services that would help expand clean transportation options for all customers in Maryland and we look forward to continuing this collaboration as we drive the transition to a cleaner and more sustainable energy future.”

Delmarva Power is working closely with state, county and municipal government agencies to determine optimal locations, on government-owned property, to site the chargers.

Across the company’s network of EV charging stations, customers will pay 18 cents per kilowatt-hour to charge at an L2 charging station or 34 cents per kWh at a DCFC station.

A typical EV driver spending $1 at an L2 charger can expect to gain approximately 25 miles in range. A L2 charger can provide about 24 miles of range per hour of charging, while a DCFC can provide about 120 miles of range in one hour of charging.

In Maryland, the EVsmart Program, which is offered by Exelon’s Maryland-based energy companies BGE, Delmarva Power and Pepco, drives progress on Maryland’s Air Quality and Chesapeake Bay goals, which include having 300,000 zero-emission vehicles on the road by 2025.
