USA: New Solar-Powered Electric Vehicle Charging Station Debuts in Bethesda

Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) was among the state, local and federal officials that gathered in Bethesda Monday to mark the installation of a new, solar-powered electric vehicle charging station.

The station is located outside the SunTrust bank at 10401 Old Georgetown Road. The 18-foot, 1,410-watt “solar power pole”—which charges two electric vehicles—is the first electric vehicle charging station in the state to feature sun-tracking technology, using a GPS system to move solar panels mounted on a pole with the position of the sun.

Designed to have a small footprint to fit in urban environments, the pole was developed by Columbia-based engineering and manufacturing firm Advanced Technology and Research Corp.
