Electric Charging Station in the News
Charging locations are at Sultan, Skykomish, Leavenworth and Wenatchee.
The West Coast Green Highway opens the west to the future of personal transportation, leaving gasoline and harmful emissions in the rearview mirror. The Pacific Northwest is blazing the trail with a unique, tri-state public-private partnership to promote alternative fuels and build a network of public electric vehicle (EV) charging stations.
- Drivers of electric vehicles benefit by:
- having more charging locations and choices
- contributing to reducing dependence on foreign oil
- helping reduce emissions and preserve our environment for future generations
- saving money at the gas pump!
Soon electric road trips will be a common way to experience the west along 1,350 miles of open road from Canada to Mexico with zero emissions and without a drop of gas!
