Electric Vehicles & Charging

Save money by going electric! Say goodbye to oil changes and gas stations, and hello to low-cost fuel, tax credits, incentives and special pricing for charging.

Electric Vehicle Benefits

Welcome to the era of options. EVs now provide a broad range of practicality, luxury and performance. There’s an EV for everyone. Find the EV that fits your lifestyle (and budget). 

Basics of Charging

Charging at home is as easy as plugging your vehicle into a garage wall outlet. Want faster charging? You can upgrade your speed by installing a Level 2 charger, which uses AC power and adds 12 to 24 miles for every hour of charging. 

Electric Avenue

The future of electric transportation isn’t tomorrow. It’s right now. There are currently more than 30,000 electric vehicles registered in Oregon, and in 2019, the Oregon legislature passed a bill setting a goal for 250,000 zero-emission vehicles to be registered by 2025. 

Electric School Bus Project

This year, PGE will partner with up to four public school districts in our service area to enable adoption of electric school buses. Electric school buses are cleaner, quieter, and less costly to operate, and the air inside and outside the bus cabin is healthier for our kids, our neighborhoods and all Oregonians.

The PGE Drive Change Fund

The PGE Drive Change Fund provides financial support to community organizations, nonprofits and businesses to advance electric vehicle adoption, EV charging infrastructure and/or education in the communities PGE serves.
