Charging An Electric Vehicle At Home

Charging at home is as easy as plugging your vehicle into a garage wall outlet. Or upgrade to a Level 2 charger to charge faster.

Wake up every morning with a “full tank”

Yes, you really can just plug your car into a regular wall outlet overnight and wake up to a fully charged car. Or you can upgrade to a Level 2 charger, which will charge your car even faster – ~50-100 miles of range with only 4 hours of charging. Incentives make at-home Level 2 chargers more affordable than you think.

Charge at home for less

Go farther with a connected at-home Level 2 charger

You could get a rebate of up to $500 through the PGE Residential EV Charging Pilot Program when you purchase, install and connect a PGE-approved Level 2 charger for your home.

No garage to charge your EV? We got you.

To meet state and local goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and promote electric vehicles, it’s pretty clear we’ll need more places to charge EVs. We are running a pilot project in the Clinton neighborhood to test out EV charging using existing utility poles. No driveway or garage for at-home charging? This project is for you.

Flat fee (all hours): $3 for 4 hours

An additional peak-time fee of $0.19 per kWh will be assessed on weekdays between 3 p.m. and 8 p.m.

Need to charge away from home? Relax, we’ve got you covered.

The Chargeway app helps you find EV charging stations wherever you are. Download the Chargeway app in the Apple App Store PGE or Google Play PGE store and get going on that road trip! More information at PGE.
