Electric Vehicle Chargers in Issaquah

EV Top News

49% of Issaquah Community Survey respondents shared that they already own or intend to own an electric vehicle in the next five years. In response to community demand and our climate goals, we are investing in electric vehicle chargers around Issaquah. 

There are over 25 EV chargers across the city, and our Sustainability, Public Works, Administrative Services and Facilities Teams are working together to fill EV charging gaps at City-owned facilities to bring more public chargers to Issaquah for those that live, work and play in the city. 

Did you know that we installed a new publicly accessible EV charger at the Issaquah Community Center in April? In 2023, this charger hosted 735 charging sessions and up to 10 unique users per day. In September when Jakob Two Trees arrived on the Rainier Trail, unique users tripled! Overall, vehicle charging on this station has led to a greenhouse gas emissions savings of 3,590 kg of CO2, equivalent to 60 urban trees planted and grown for 10 years or 404 gallons of gas saved based on EPA equivalency data.
