Curbside EV chargers

Seattle City Light (SCL) has announced that it is launching a service that will install public electric vehicle chargers at curbside locations throughout the city. Acceptable locations include:

  • Single-family homes, including properties with detached single houses, duplexes, triplexes, fourplexes, townhomes, and accessory dwelling units. These requests must be for properties that do not have off-street parking (like driveways or garages).
  • Any multi-family housing property with five or more units, including apartments, condominiums, houseboats, or mobile home parks.

SCL has published a list of minimum requirements for a public EV charging site. You can read more about the program here. Applications are being accepted now, with construction for approved locations to occur in 2023.
