Business EV Charging Rebates

Bring EV charging to your business, commercial property or fleet

With the new PGE Business EV Charging Pilot Program, you can apply for rebates to help offset the cost of installing qualifying Level 2 or DC fast electric vehicle chargers.

Meet your sustainability goals and help Oregon meet our climate goals

EVs are changing the way we drive and how we do business. We provide financial incentives to help bring EV adoption to your workplace, commercial property or fleet. By installing EV chargers, you’ll not only support your business’s sustainability, but also contribute to meeting our region’s climate and environmental goals. As an amenity, EV chargers could bring more customer traffic, greater employee satisfaction and more interest from potential tenants. If you operate a fleet, EV chargers can enable a smoother transition to affordable electric fuel.
