New EV charging station online in Grandview

News Release

​Energy Northwest recently completed a new electric vehicle (EV) charging station located at the Grandview Museum at 115 W. Wine Country Road in Grandview. The new station includes a 50kW direct current fast charger (Level 3 DCFC) and two 7.2kW Level 2 chargers.

The charging station, which is owned and operated by Energy Northwest, is accessible to the public at all times with dedicated EV parking spaces and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility. 

The project was supported by a $75,000 grant from Pacific Power, which was awarded to the City of Grandview in May 2021 as part of Pacific Power's commitment to help customers and communities take advantage of cost-saving, clean benefits of electric mobility. The City of Grandview partnered with Energy Northwest to construct, own, and operate the charging station.

Energy Northwest is a Washington state joint operating agency that owns and operates a 100% carbon-free electricity-generating portfolio and began involvement with EV charging infrastructure in 2016.

The Grandview station is Energy Northwest's 12th charging location in the Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Transportation Alliance (EVITA) project's network, with eight additional stations under construction along U.S. Route 12 that will be complete this fall.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the transportation sector is the largest contributor to U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, accounting for 27% of total U.S. emissions in 2020. Within the transportation sector, 57% of emissions come from passenger cars and light-duty trucks, and 26% of emissions from medium- and heavy-duty trucks.  Washington's energy strategy recommends rapid electrification of all transportation markets to meet Washington's emission reduction goals for the transportation sector, aligning with Energy Northwest's vision to lead the clean energy transformation for the regional public power community.
