Want an EV charging station at your Seattle home?

The city of Seattle has 30 EV charging stations ready to install across town. It's asking for homeowners and landlords to speak up if they want one along their street. With more than 300 people speaking up so far, the city is going to have to pick and choose.

King5 reports that Seattle has been open to requests for level 2 EV charging stations since the start of June. The city will install the charging stations for free. Users will pay about 20 cents per kilowatt.

The city aims to reduce transportation emissions 83% by 2030. It is hoped that the new EV charging stations will help achieve this goal.

Seattle is accepting EV requests through the end of August.
