Decarbonize your fleet
Choose electric vehicles and renewable energy for clean transportation!
Did you know that 40 percent of Oregon’s carbon emissions come from transportation? * That makes driving the biggest single source of carbon pollution in our state.
Switching from fossil fuels to electricity to power our vehicles is a critical step toward a clean, carbon-free energy future. (PGE’s power mix is already 40 percent carbon-free, and we’re on track to be at 70 percent by 2040.) It’s more sustainable and cost-effective, and when paired with renewable energy, electric vehicles become a zero-carbon way for your organization to move people and products.
Put EVs on the job
Here are a few ways your company can support electric transportation:
- Consider an EV for your next company car, truck or van. Manufacturer discounts, a $7,500 federal tax credit and a new, $2,500 Oregon incentive make EVs cost-competitive with gasoline alternatives.
- Love the bus. TriMet is partnering with PGE to purchase and support five electric buses. You can encourage employees to choose public transportation by offering discounts on TriMet passes.
- Take an electric cab for business travel. Most major cities have some taxi, ride-share and car-sharing services that already offer EVs.
5 reasons to electrify your company’s vehicles
1,000,000+ clean miles
PGE is helping pave the way to a cleaner transportation future. Since we installed our Electric Avenue charging stations at Portland’s World Trade Center in 2015, we’ve powered more than one million miles of EV driving—all with 100 percent renewable energy. That’s equivalent to driving across Oregon 2,500 times, carbon free!
