About Us

The Tesla Owners Club of Maryland is the only Official Tesla club in Maryland and DC. This is the member-only group website for the Tesla Owners Club of Maryland and is intended as a place where we help and support our Tesla owner friends and neighbors in Maryland, DC, and the surrounding area. We fully support other official Tesla Owners groups and plan to promote and collaborate with them and other EV and Green groups in the area.

The Club’s Officers are:

President: JD Taylor
JD got involved with electric vehicles in 2013 with the purchase of a Ford Fusion Energi Plug-In Electric Hybrid. He is a member of the Board of Directors for Poolesville.Green and as such, he grew the National Drive Electric Poolesville Day event from a few vehicles to more than 200 vehicles (to the largest NDEW in the world). After the breakup of the Tesla Owners Club Mid-Atlantic, Tesla asked him to create the club for Maryland. JD owns a 2017 Tesla Model X, a Zero SRS motorcycle, and a Rivian R1T. He owns many EGO electric home and garden tools, has Solar City (now Tesla) solar panels, and uses geothermal to heat and cool his home. He belongs to and supports many of the EV clubs and Green groups in the area. He is at his best when creating, supporting, and attending events that confirm a green cause.
