Central Maryland - National Plug In Day

FREE EVent t-shirt for EV owners! Join Central Maryland Volt and Electric Vehicle owners to celebrate National Plug In Day! This site, located next to the White Marsh Mall north east of Baltimore has 5 ChargePoint America charging stations. The general public is welcome!

This website will be updated weekly as we add activities. One of the goals of National Plug In Day is to increase awareness of electric vehicles and charging stations. This venue is a great place to chat with owners of EVs to learn about their experiences, and the benefits of plug in vehicles.

Our event will feature an EV meetup, ride and drives of EVs, sponsors with tables and displays, an award presentation to the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA), a citation presented by Baltimore County and a letter of support from Senator Ben Cardin. Presentations will occur at 11 AM. We will also have a raffle for door-prizes provided by sponsors. ALL attendees must ride in or drive at least 1 plug in or hybrid to be entered into the drawing for door prizes. If you will be at the event for an extended period of time, please bring a lawn chair.

Every EV owner who attends this event will receive a FREE EVent t-shirt! Additional t-shirts will be available for purchase while supplies last.
