Employees at General Motors' plant in White Marsh have an unusual workplace benefit. Anyone who drives an electric car can plug it in to charge while they work.

At the plant, which produces transmissions and electric motors, workers can park their electric vehicles — or EVs — in any of eight spaces under two solar-powered canopies in the employee lot.

"You encourage the use of EVs and give employees some benefit," said William Tiger, plant manager for General Motors Baltimore Operations.
