Electric Vehicles & Charging

Have you seen the price of gas lately? EVs cost a lot less to fuel and with zero tailpipe emissions, they're easier on the environment too!

There’s an EV for everyone

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.

Clean and green

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? Zero tailpipe emissions. And you can make your electricity mix 100% carbon free with our renewable power program.

Save at the pump

With electric vehicles, there's no gas to burn or gas to buy. And maintenance, what maintenance? Simply charge your EV overnight or use any one of the numerous public charging stations and you'll be set to go. EVs are easy!

Go the distance

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.

Electricity: The new transportation fuel

Cleaner

Less than half the CO₂ emissions per mile and only getting cleaner.

Cheaper

At least 40 percent less than gas/diesel per mile.

Local

Produced here in the Pacific Northwest.

Stable

Regulated for long-term price stability.

When it comes to electric vehicles, there is no reverse.

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’re doing it, too.

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.

Electric school buses – yes!

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.

Got an electrification project that needs funding?

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.
