Savings and incentives

You can power an EV for the equivalent of about $1 per gallon of gasoline, which can make a big difference for your budget. In many cases, electric vehicles cost less to maintain than gas-fueled cars because they have fewer moving parts. You can wave goodbye to oil changes and the gas station.

Federal tax credits

Tax credit for electric vehicles — up to $7,500; consult your tax advisor

Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Tax Credit  — up to $1,000 for consumers or up to $100,000 for businesses

State incentives

Energy rate options

It’s best to charge your car at night and on weekends when there is less demand for electricity. You have the choice to enroll in our Time of Use program to take advantage of lower rates for charging during these off-peak hours.

To further reduce your environmental footprint, enroll in our Blue Sky renewable energy program.

Oregon grant opportunities

Communities, multifamily properties and other organizations can apply for grants to help pay for the cost of installing electric vehicle charging stations.
