Several charging station manufacturers such as Blink, Xeal and ChargePoint were on hand to celebrate this milestone with Blue Whale EV. In addition, representatives from Maryland State and local governments made opening remarks and presented citations to Blue Whale EV and Critical Peake.


A citation was presented on behalf of Congressman, John Sarbanes, 3rd District, State of Maryland, “The Blue Whale EV team is working hard to advance sustainable transportation solutions, contributing to the growth of the electric vehicle infrastructure and fostering a greener tomorrow for our community.”


Peter Smith, Council Member, District 1, Anne Arundel County, said, “Today, marks a significant milestone as we celebrate the opening of Blue Whale EV’s new facility in Hanover.

With our years of experience in electrical and mechanical installations for commercial properties, we consistently strive for the highest quality as the installation and maintenance partner of Blue Whale EV.”


The EV charging industry is expanding rapidly, and manufacturers are doing all they can to simply produce enough chargers to keep up with demand. The year 2023 saw electric vehicles commanding 7.6% of total US car sales, a significant increase from 5.9% in 2022. Handling customer education, sales negotiation, installation, and maintenance on top of manufacturing chargers is something few companies can sustain. With established partnerships with electrical services providers, as well as industry expertise in EV charging, Blue Whale EV connects manufacturers with clients and ensures that all clients receive the attention and service they need throughout their EV charging adoption journey.
