MARCH 19, 2014
The Port of Seattle, along with Alaska Airlines, Western Washington Clean Cities and US Representative Adam Smith unveiled a new project providing nearly 600 electric charging stations throughout the airport for ground support equipment (GSE) such as baggage tugs, bag ramps and pushback vehicles. As many as 650 vehicles could eventually be covered by electric technology and make a huge difference in the airport’s carbon footprint.
