EVs strike that perfect balance between meeting your transportation needs and being part of the clean energy future. And with more and more places to charge, now’s the time to go electric.
We're electrifying our fleet and invite you to do the same. We have all kinds of expertise to help you every step of the way, and with Fleet Partner, we can even help you fund it!

It’s easy to do your part to reduce greenhouse gas emissions when you drive an electric vehicle. Here in Oregon, gas engines account for 40 percent of greenhouse gas emissions. EVs? Virtually zero tailpipe emissions. And you can make your electricity mix 100% carbon free with our Green Future renewable power program.
Let's get real. Older electric vehicles did have one shortcoming: range. But that was a loooong time ago. Today, the average EV can travel 275 miles on a charge, and some models can go a bladder-stretching 450 miles before you have to re-charge. Compare how far different cars can go on a single charge with our EV Costs & Savings Calculator.
It won’t happen overnight, but we have confidence in our ability to work together to significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions in our state. We have confidence in you. Here are a few ways we are supporting transportation electrification, with your help.
We are walking the talk around our commitment to advancing transportation electrification in Oregon. More than 60% of our entire fleet will be electric by 2030, including 100% of Class 1 vehicles (sedans, SUVs, small pickups — even forklifts), by 2025.
Cleaner, quieter, less costly to operate – what’s not to love about electric school buses? Especially because the air inside and outside the bus cabin is healthier for our kids, our neighborhoods and all Oregonians. That’s why we are partnering with four public school districts in our service area to enable adoption of electric school buses.
From transit buses and passenger vehicles to electric bikes and community service vehicles, the PGE Drive Change Fund is all about electrifying transportation in Oregon. Do you have a local electric vehicle adoption, EV charging infrastructure and/or education project you would like us to fund? Get in touch.
