Charging Your Electric Vehicle

Drive past the pump into a cleaner, greener future

You may be shocked at how quickly the EV landscape has changed. There are more ways than ever to charge at home or wherever your life takes you. High gas prices? No thanks. Stopping to refuel again? Not today. Get an EV and get going – for less than you think!

Charge your EV ...

at home

Many EVs come with a charger that uses a standard wall outlet. If you want to charge faster at home, you can enroll in our EV Smart Charging program that offers rebates on Level 2 home EV chargers and installation services.

on the go

Nowhere to plug in at home? Need to charge away from home? No problem. Recharge at one of our Electric Avenue locations or download the Chargeway app that helps you find EV charging stations all over the place.

in your neighborhood

We’re amped to partner with cities across our service territory to make EV chargers more accessible for everyone. Throughout this year, you’ll see us out in neighborhoods installing charging stations on our utility poles, making it easier for you and your neighbors to go electric and drive Oregon’s clean energy future.
