The AFIP has helped to install 130 new electric charging and alternative fueling outlets throughout the state over the past three years.  Establishing enough refilling or charging options is critical to consumer confidence.  Range anxiety is the fear that a vehicle has insufficient range to reach its destination and would thus strand the vehicle’s occupants. In Maryland, AFIP is addressing range anxiety for local drivers and as well as travelers passing along the coast.  You can track the progress of this tremendous program here 2016 results, 2017 results, and 2018 results.
