The PGE Drive Change Fund

The PGE Drive Change Fund

Transportation is the single biggest source of greenhouse gas emissions in Oregon. In our pursuit of a clean energy future, we are committed to reducing those emissions by accelerating access to — and adoption of — electric vehicles for everyone.

From transit buses and passenger vehicles to electric bikes and community service vehicles, the PGE Drive Change Fund supports projects that help electrify transportation in Oregon.

Community organizations, nonprofits and businesses can apply for grants to advance electric vehicle adoption, EV charging infrastructure and/or education in the communities PGE serves PGE.
