|O'Malley Appoints Electric Vehicle Council|
Industry and Environmental Leaders to Advise Mayor on Implementing Electric Vehicles in State
(Rockville, MD – Aug. 12, 2011) – Representatives of automobile manufacturers and dealers, electrical vehicle (EV) charging manufacturers, utilities, electrical workers, State and local governments, and environmental and energy experts were recently named by Governor Martin O’Malley to the new Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Council.
Clean Currents is doubly proud of this latest announcement from the Governor’s office, as co-founder and President of Clean Currents, Gary Skulnik, is included in the Vehicle Council. “I’m honored to be asked by Governor O’Malley to serve on this important council as we determine the future shape of the electric vehicle market in Maryland. I share the Governor’s vision of a cleaner, greener state powered by clean electricity that we can now use in our homes and businesses, and soon will be using in our cars. I will work hard to make sure that the rules that Maryland establishes to govern electric vehicles will be good for consumers, will encourage the growth of the industry through Maryland businesses, will further enhance our blossoming competitive electricity market, and will help improve our environment”, said Skulnik. “We have an opportunity here to catapult Maryland to the forefront of electric vehicle adoption, bringing with it thousands of green jobs and a more sustainable transportation infrastructure.”
Charged with planning and coordinating the successful integration of electric vehicles into Maryland’s communities and transportation system, the EV Infrastructure Council was created by legislation introduced by the Governor in the 2011 Session (House Bill 167/Senate Bill 176) as part of a package of bills to promote electric vehicles.
