People visiting Montgomery County in electric cars now have four additional spots to charge their vehicles.

Parking officials in the county said they installed charging stations in three garages in Bethesda and another lot in Silver Spring, bringing the total in the county to 16. (Each station can charge up to two vehicles.)

The stations can be found in the Woodmont-Rugby Garage, Cordell-St. Elmo Garage, and Bethesda-Elm Garage in Bethesda; and the Bonifant and Easley Parking Lot in Silver Spring.

Drivers who use the charging stations must pay 13 cents per kilowatt hour in addition to whatever fees are charged by the garage or lot. An hour of charge time gives vehicles between 10 and 20 miles of drive time. There is a four-hour time limit at each charging station.
