USA: New Electric Vehicle Charging Stations Debut On Bethesda Row

Commuters and residents can get charged up at two new car charger locations near Bethesda Row.

Chargers for electric vehicles are already operating at numerous locations across Montgomery County, including two in Bethesda.

Federal Realty, the management company for Bethesda Row, is one of the firms taking the lead nationally in helping provide the infrastructure essential for the new electric vehicle technology to be implemented on a widespread and even massive scale in the not-too-distant future.

The car charging units are located in the garage beneath Bethesda Row at 4950 Elm Street. To access it, pass through the gate there and the station is at the first parking spot past the elevators. Cost: 49 cents per kilowatt hour.

Federal Realty also has charging stations at Rockville Town Square and at Pentagon Row in northern Virginia.

“With a growing number of our residents and visitors now driving electric vehicles, we wanted to provide EV charging service to give them the convenience of recharging while at work or shopping at the mixed-use Maryland and Virginia properties,” Michael Kelleher, vice president, asset management at Federal Realty, said in a statement.

These plans have been in the works for some time. As Bethesda Patch reported last summer, there’s already a charging station at Sun Trust Bank on Old Georgetown Road that opened last August.
