- Partnership with TriMet to enable Oregon's first all-electric bus route: PGE will install and manage six bus charging stations, creating an infrastructure to support an entirely electric bus route in Beaverton. The partnership also enables TriMet to purchase an additional electric bus.
- Electric Avenue charging stations expanding to six locations: The charging stations will be strategically located across PGE's service area so, like a gas station, drivers have reliable access to efficient charging options.
- Three-year outreach and technical assistance to support customers interested in transitioning to electric vehicles: Outreach will include technical assistance to builders, commercial and industrial customers, and hosting ride-and-drive events to expose more Oregonians to the opportunities to adopt an electrified mode of travel.
Approval of PGE's plan follows Gov. Kate Brown's executive order issued in November 2017 establishing a goal of 50,000 registered electric vehicles in Oregon by 2020."I'm pleased to see this plan was approved," said Jeff Allen, executive director, Forth. "As more utility investment deploys more charging infrastructure, more drivers adopt electric vehicles. More vehicles on the road also create greater utilization of charging infrastructure, which in turn improves the economics of infrastructure deployment."
