Pepco opens two electric vehicle charging stations in Washington
Pepco officials have opened two electric vehicle charging stations in Washington, the first of 10 the utility says it plans across its coverage area.
Pepco says other stations are planned in Maryland, Delaware and southern New Jersey.
Pepco Chairman and CEO Joseph M. Rigby unveiled the first two stations Monday at the utility's Edison Place garage on Eighth Street NW, where a Chevy Volt plug-in electric car was recharged. The company says it plans to buy 10 Volts, which will be used in a study on the effects of vehicle charging on the electrical grid.
The cars will be added to the company's fleet and driven by employees.
