On Tuesday (March 18), Sea-Tac Airport unveiled a new electrification project, meant to convert vehicles on the airfield from fossil fuels to electric power, in hopes of saving millions of dollars and tons of greenhouse gases.

The port has installed bright yellow charging corrals with smart, fast-charging plug-ins for vehicles to receive a full charge in less than 4 hours. The smart technology determines which vehicle needs the most charge and meters out the power. This first phase provides 296 charging locations throughout concourse D, C, and the north satellite. The second phase will cover the rest of the terminal at concourse A, B, and the south satellite for a total of 576 charging locations by September.
