Applications open to fund Oregon electric mobility projects - 05/18/23

PORTLAND, Ore. (May 18, 2023) — Nonprofits, local governments and other non-residential Pacific Power customers in Oregon are encouraged to apply for Pacific Power’s Electric Mobility Grants. More than $1.5 million will be available to help fund projects increasing electric vehicle access in Oregon.

Grant funding is made possible by the Oregon Clean Fuels Program, which is administered by the state Department of Environmental Quality and aims to reduce the carbon intensity of Oregon’s transportation fuels. Pacific Power raises funds through the sale of Clean Fuels Program credits, which the company aggregates on behalf of customers who charge their electric vehicles at home. 

“Electric vehicles and supporting infrastructure are increasingly in-demand by customers and communities across the state,” said Cory Scott, vice president of community and customer solutions. “This grant program is just one of the ways Pacific Power is helping prepare communities for more electric vehicles on the road.”

Since 2020, Pacific Power has awarded more than 40 unique E-Mobility Grants to nonprofits, local governments, hospitals and other non-residential customers served by Pacific Power in Oregon. 

“Pacific Power is unique in that we serve diverse communities throughout Oregon, including large metro areas and rural communities, major corridors and vacation destinations, “said Kate Hawley, senior product manager, electric transportation. “We have supported many innovative projects over the last few years, and we look forward to seeing what is in store for this year.”

Funding awards may cover up to 100% of the project cost. All non-residential Pacific Power customers in Oregon are eligible to apply with preference given to community-focused organizations, such as school and transit districts, 501(c)(3) organizations and city, county and regional governments. Online applications will be accepted up to Aug. 31, 2023, at 5 p.m. Recipients will be announced in November 2023. Grant recipients must complete projects within 18 months from the date of award. 

In addition to the Electric Mobility Grant, Pacific Power is pleased to make electric vehicle grant matching support funds available to non-residential customers in Oregon who plan to secure additional funding to support Pacific Power customers with EV-related projects. Additionally, grant writing support is available for non-residential customers to apply to EV-related grants to support Pacific Power customers. 

Pacific Power also offers customers an electric vehicle charging station technical assistance program. The program supports non-residential customers interested in installing electrical vehicle supply equipment or electrifying their fleet with technical assistance. The technical assistance program is available at no cost and includes a site visit, analysis of electric vehicle technology options, costs, rates and best practices for siting, configuring, installing and managing equipment.

For detailed eligibility requirements, charging station project qualifications, additional technical assistance program details, application forms and more information about the benefits of electric vehicles, please visit pacificpower.net/ev.
