Seattle City Light Multifamily EV Charging Program - Funding Opportunity

In the dynamic landscape of sustainable living, Seattle City Light’s Multifamily EV Charging Program isn’t just about powering vehicles; it’s about energizing communities and steering property management towards a sustainable future.

The Seattle City Light Multifamily EV Charging Program is a powerful catalyst, propelling property owners and operators into a future where Electric Vehicle (EV) charging is not just a perk, but a cornerstone of modern living. This program offers incentives to multifamily properties looking to install EV chargers,  offering 50-100% of project costs (up to $50,000) for the installation of Level 2 charging stations at multifamily buildings and condominiums. Multifamily properties must have at least five units to participate in the Multifamily EV Charging Program.

By investing in EV charging infrastructure, property owners and operators can be at the forefront of a green revolution, contributing to a more eco-friendly, forward-thinking Seattle. If you are contemplating installing EV chargers and keen to learn how much you could be eligible for, do not waste any time and contact us.
