Oregon is a leader in creating a strong infrastructure for electric vehicles. We've partnered with a variety of private companies and other organizations to develop a system that supports electric vehicle operations, tourism and more.
Eight states spanning east to west have created a collaborative “Multi-State ZEV Action Plan” that will guide efforts to put 3.3 million zero emission vehicles on the roads by 2025. Oregon, California, Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont created the first promised milestone for the bi-coastal collaboration aimed at paving the way for the cleanest cars in the nation – ZEVs. The plan focuses on infrastructure, policies, standards and other components critical for the success of a growing market.
Electric vehicle charging stations are locations where vehicles can plug in to an electrical source to re-charge batteries. EV charging stations are necessary to support what is expected to be a growing fleet of EVs throughout Oregon. In fact, every vehicle manufacturer has announced plans to release plug-in vehicles, and many of them are arriving in Oregon daily. But their popularity will only increase to the degree that there are charging stations available for vehicle owners to re-charge their cars. And the charging stations have to be conveniently located to ensure EV owners they don't get stranded in between charges.
