Electric car owners are on the rise in Bellevue with options ranging from the ubergreen Nissan Leaf to the swanky Tesla Roadster. To respond to the increasing demand, The Bellevue Collection just installed 15 charging stations so shoppers can recharge their electric cars while they shop.

Lucky for new buyers at One Main Street Condominiums, the controlled-access parking garage offers homeowners with electric cars the ability to plug in and recharge while they sleep.
