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.

Please ensure that the use of the adapter conforms with your local and national codes, standards, regulations or laws.

I’m in the program. Now what?

Joining the PGE Residential EV Charging Pilot Program automatically enrolls you in the PGE Smart Charging Program. You’ll earn a $25 credit on your bill at the end of a Smart Charging season (October to March and April to September) by:

  • Shifting your EV charging to when energy demand is low at least three times (we call these “demand response” events)

  • Keeping your EV charger connected to the internet 50% of the time

  • Charging your EV fully at least 13 times

Want to drive even cleaner?

Our Basic Service home energy plan includes renewable energy in the mix, but if you want to be an environmental super star, you’ll want to charge your EV using 100% clean energy. We can help. Enroll in PGE’s Green Future program and we’ll make sure all of the energy you use comes from renewable sources.
