Electric and alternative fuel vehicles are increasingly common on our roads, and many efforts are underway to accelerate the adoption of these vehicles nationwide. This website is intended to help local planners, decisionmakers, and residents find resources and explore equity issues to prepare for this shift in our transportation system.
Why Electric & Alternative Fuel Vehicles?
Switching from fossil fuel vehicles to electric (EVs) and other alternative fuel vehicles improves air quality, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, and can save owners money on fuel and maintenance.
Washington State has adopted a plan with the following vision for electric vehicles - that all Washingtonians and visitors have the ability to use an EV and find convenient, affordable, and accessible fast-charging stations. The vision is accompanied by several goals, including reaching 500,000 EV registrations by 2027. The state has indicated a commitment to adopt California’s vehicle emissions standards and ban the sale of new gas-powered vehicles by 2035.
