Energy in Oregon

Zero Emission Vehicles, ZEVs, are all-electric models that drive without emitting harmful greenhouse gases.

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. A Zero Emission Vehicle Interagency Working Group is working to implement the goals. 

ODOE also works with agency partners on a M​ulti-State Zero Emission Vehicle Action Plan​ and the international ZEV Alliance agreement. Both plans focus on government agencies leading the way for adopting ZEVs. 

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. 

We also offer guidance to business and government fleets​ that want to make the switch to zero emissions vehicles or other alternative fuels. 

The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality offers rebates on purchases and leases of EVs that operate with zero emissions. More information is available on the DEQ website
