PGE Fleet Partner

Take the guesswork out of transitioning your fleet

Your partner from start to finish

Making the leap to electric fuel is tough when it’s just your own car. Electrifying an entire fleet is downright intimidating. The PGE Fleet Partner program takes the guesswork out of transitioning your fleet, so you can realize both your sustainability and economic goals.

Other considerations for fleet electrification


Carbon Impact

Estimated emissions reduction

Clean fuels credits

EVs typically cost less to operate because fuel and maintenance costs are lower. When you own and operate an EV charger, whether it’s for your fleet, your employees or the public, you generate Clean Fuel Credits through the Oregon Clean Fuels Program. We can help you turn the credits your chargers earn into revenue for your business. How it works.

Just fill out the simple online CFC revenue interest form to get started.

Charging equipment

Different types of EVs require different levels of equipment. Depending on your fleet, you may need Level 2 chargers, DC Fast Charging (DCFC) or Extreme Fast Charging (XFC).

To receive a rebate, your charger must be purchased from a list of PGE qualified chargers.
