Home EV Charging Rebates

Go farther with a connected at-home Level 2 charger

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

Save money, go farther, support our clean energy future

Whether you currently own an EV or are planning to purchase one soon, the PGE Residential EV Charging Pilot Program will help you save money, go farther and support Oregon’s clean energy future. As part of the PGE Residential EV Charging Pilot Program, we’re rewarding residential PGE customers who own or lease an EV with a rebate of up to $500 when they buy a PGE-approved connected Level 2 EV home charger. When you participate in this pilot program, you’ll be automatically enrolled in the PGE Smart Charging Program. By allowing PGE to shift your EV home charger’s energy usage away from times when general energy use is at high demand, prices are at their highest or renewable resources are less available, you’re helping to manage the grid’s needs. Our way of saying thank you is by giving you a $25 Smart Charging Participation reward at the end of each season.

Now you’re in! Welcome to PGE Smart Charging.

When you receive a rebate on your EV charger, you’re automatically enrolled in the PGE Smart Charging Program. It’s easy to earn rewards while doing good for the environment and helping us build a more efficient and resilient grid. So, how does it work?

  • Your charger will automatically shift its charging schedule away from peak times when energy use is high and renewable resources are more scarce. We call these Smart Charging Events.

  • During these events, your charger will pause your vehicle charging. It will start again once the event is over. You can opt out of any event via your charging app.

  • When you participate, you can earn a $25 credit on your bill at the end of a Smart Charging season (October to March and April to September).

You’ll be randomly assigned to one of two groups, which have different Smart Charging Event hours.

Event days

Group A

Monday through Friday (except holidays)

Group B

Monday through Friday (except holidays)

Event times

Group A

5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Group B

10 p.m. to midnight
