Get "Plug-In" Ready
Electric-vehicle technology is a promising new opportunity to reduce emissions from Bellevue's largest single emissions sector – transportation. The city is continuously working to ensure that our community and region are prepared to transition to cleaner vehicles that reduce fuel consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, and costs for residents and businesses. Working in collaboration with all levels of government, as well as businesses, nonprofits and community members, Bellevue is supporting the installation of charging stations throughout the region and helping to educate the community.
City staff are working to:
- Streamline the permitting process and reduce costs to homeowners and businesses for installing charging stations;
- Identify code changes necessary for the installation of new charging stations;
- Install publicly available charging stations at City Hall and major Parks facilities;
- Provide education about electric vehicles, charging stations and the benefits of this technology;
- Coordinate a regional EV infrastructure strategy with neighboring cities, King County and the state;
- Procure electric vehicles for use in city fleets; and
- Stay tuned to all developments in this emerging industry.
Funding for EV Infrastructure
Bellevue has received direct funding for electric vehicle infrastructure from Department of Energy as part of our Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG), as well as from the Western Washington Clean Cities Coalition.
