Zero Emission Vehicles, ZEVs, are all-electric models that drive without emitting harmful greenhouse gases.
ODOE partners with other state agencies to implement a Multi-State Zero Emission Vehicle Action Plan
and the international ZEV Alliance
agreement. Both plans focus on government agencies leading the way for adopting ZEVs.
With our partners, ODOE's leadership and expertise have helped increase the availability of ZEV chargers in the state. Now, ZEV drivers can access chargers
down the entire length of the I-5 corridor.
ODOE offers programs for Oregon residents or businesses and municipalities that want to make the switch to ZEVs. Residents can apply for a tax credit
for installing certain electric chargers at home, and businesses, nonprofits, or government agencies can earn a transportation tax credit
for electric fleets and infrastructure.
The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality is developing a program that will offer rebates on purchases and leases of EVs that operate with zero emissions. More information is available on the DEQ website
