Zero Emission Vehicles, ZEVs, are all-electric models that drive without emitting harmful greenhouse gases.
ODOE is partnering with other State of Oregon agencies to implement Executive Order 17-21, an initiative to accelerate electric vehicle adoption in our state. The EO includes a bold goal: at least 50,000 registered electric vehicles on Oregon roads by 2020.
With our partners, we launched Go Electric Oregon –
a website designed to share milestones toward our EV goals, information about electric vehicles and charging, and stories about Oregonians who have made the switch to electric.
ODOE's leadership and expertise has 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.
The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality is implementing 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
