The Spokane Regional Transportation Electrification Grant Project
The Spokane Regional Transportation Council (SRTC) in partnership with Avista and local jurisdictions in Spokane County have received a $2,500,000 grant from the Washington State Department of Commerce to install electric vehicle charging around the region. This project will help our community make the transition to electric vehicles a little bit easier.
The EV charging installation will support public charging and workplace charging at various locations throughout Spokane County, Spokane Transit bus charging, City of Spokane fleet charging, and support micromobility.
Some of the chargers will be AC Level 2 (good for workplace charging and small electric boosts) and some will be DC Fast Chargers (good for quick electric fill).
Chargers will become available to the public as early as 2022! We will keep you posted here about chargers that come on line. Check out the EV Charging Stations Map below for precise locations and information.

Electrification Grant Implementation
SRTC is pioneering a $2.5 million award from the Washington State Department of Commerce for the installation of electric vehicle charging infrastructure throughout the Spokane Region. The implementation partnership is with The City of Spokane, Spokane City Council and regional municipalities (Spokane Valley, Cheney, Airway Heights, Liberty Lake). Collaborations from Spokane County, Spokane Tribe, Spokane Airport, Spokane Library, Spokane Transit Authority, Avista, University District, Urbanova, and the City’s Fleets & Parks department among others contributed to this successful grant application. Avista, the local utility provider matched the grant at a ratio of 3:1.
This project requires significant coordination to place charging infrastructure at 50 locations across the region. SRTC recently passed a major milestone in July completing tribal coordination related to historical and cultural resources at all but three locations which will undergo further study. The community will have additional AC Level two and DC fast charging stations for use starting in 2022.
