Infrastructure Evolution: Building Seattle's Foundation for an Electrified Transportation Future

To support the widespread adoption of electric vehicles and transportation technologies, Seattle is committed to ensuring the necessary electrical infrastructure is in place and operational. This goal focuses on upgrading the city's energy grid to accommodate the increased demand from electric transportation, ensuring reliability, and facilitating the rapid transition to electrified transport. It highlights the importance of strategic investment in infrastructure to enable a cleaner, electrified transportation future. 


To meet this goal, City Light is installing Level 2 EV and DC fast EV chargers in locations across Seattle, including EV chargers in residential neighborhoods. Public demand has led to 31 new curbside EV charger locations, which were selected after reviewing more than 1,800 resident requests. City Light also launched a multi-family EV charging program that offers rebates to multi-family property owners to install EV charging stations at their properties. As of December 2023, 19 projects have been completed, with 154 properties in the program pipeline. This will help close the EV charging access gap for multi-family residents.
