Global Automakers provided a statement in support of Maryland's utility proceeding, PC44, and asked the Commissioners for expedited action to implement the utilities' electric vehicle plans. Thiese plans would allow utilities to engage in EV promotion actions, including, for example, development of infrastructure, supporting multi-unit dwellings, and engaging in consumer education activites for electric vehicles. Global Automakers encouraged utility involvement in the electric vehicle market as one piece of a larger and broader strategy needed in states to grow electric vehicle sales.
