Car Charging / May 27, 2020

Seattle, also known as Emerald City, is a port city where activities are never lacking in its dynamic downtown. As it borders the Pacific Ocean, 90% of their electricity is derived from hydropower, putting mass electrification of transportation and the development of the charging infrastructure on the agenda.

Downtown has a strong concentration of level 2 charging stations and level 3 charging stations (DC Fast Charging stations or DCFC) within a radius of 10 miles. Some of these are found in the neighbouring Capitol Hill at Harvard Market and REO flats. Moreover, the city of Seattle has launched a program for the year 2017 where they will add 20 fast charging stations to its charging infrastructure.

When you visit Seattle (or live there), it’s essential to make your way to the Pike Place Market, century-old market since 1907 in Seattle’s port, only a few steps away from the city’s museums and touristic hubs. Locate the first Starbucks that was ever founded in the Soames-Dunn building, vintage hats and the smell of fresh fish emanating from the market stalls and restaurants. That’s right, seafood lovers will be happy to relish in the catches of the day – salmon, halibut, tuna, crab, shrimp, oysters, mussels and much more!

From Space Needle tower, you can experience the 360-degree view of the city, surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, Puget Sound, the Olympic mountains that divide Washington State in two and Mt. Rainier. It goes without saying that the city is in a prime location and provides a high quality of life for its citizens. Seattle’s charging infrastructure provides charging stations from various networks such as Blink, Greenlots, Tesla, EVgo, ChargePoint and SemaCharge.
