Fromhttps://durkan.seattle.gov/?wysija-page=1PeriThis week, the Seattle City Council passed Mayor Durkan’s legislation requiring all new buildings in Seattle that include off-street parking – like a parking garage – have the necessary infrastructure to support electric vehicle (EV) charging stations. This builds on the Washington State Legislature’s newly-passed budget, which includes legislation, HB 1512, that provides utilities like Seattle City Light the ability to invest in the electrification of transportation infrastructure.The new measures will require that every individual residence with private parking includes an EV-ready space. For multifamily development with shared parking facilities, at least 20 percent of the spaces will be EV-ready. Parking facilities for non-residential uses will include a minimum of 10 percent of EV-ready spaces. The electric vehicle requirements are flexible in instances where meeting the required amount of EV paces would require upgrades to the utility infrastructure.Read the Mayor’s statement here.
