$50 just for enrolling
$25 in bill credits twice a year for allowing PGE to pause your Tesla charging during times of high demand.
At the same time, sign up for the Test Bed EV Charging Study and you'll get an additional $20 in bill credits each month. That’s up to $340 in your pocket the first year! Just keep your car plugged in when you’re not using it.
It’s that simple!
With PGE Smart Charging, you never have to worry about planning your EV charging again. Simply plug in when you park at home. Your Tesla will charge to meet your needs and you’ll earn bill credits as we optimize your charging to times when electricity costs and energy demand is lowest.
You’ll always have the charge you need as you save money and help shape Oregon’s clean energy future.
In times of high demand, we will pause your charge. But don’t worry, you're always in control — just let us know how much charge you need and when and we’ll take care of the rest. Your Tesla does the work and you get the rewards.
