Thanks to years of hard work by Forth and our partners, Oregon drivers can receive up to $7,500 in rebates from the Oregon Clean Vehicle Rebate Program.
Oregon offers a rebate of up to $2,500 for new all-electric, plug-in hybrid vehicles and zero-emission electric motorcycles and up to an additional $5,000 for mid-to-low-income drivers to buy new or used electric vehicles.
The Standard Rebate of up to $2,500 applies to the purchase or lease of a new battery electric, plug-in hybrid vehicle or zero-emission electric motorcycle (from a dealer) with a base MSRP of $50,000 or less.
The Charge Ahead rebate provides up to $5,000 off the purchase of a new or used electric or plug-in hybrid car (from a dealer) with an original base MSRP of under $50,000 for qualifying buyers (based on income. USE DEQ's income calculator to see if you may qualify).

Charging Infrastructure Rebates
Portland General Electric offers a pilot program that provides up to a $500 rebate for residential customers who own or lease an electric vehicle to install a charger at home. Income-eligible customers could qualify for up to a $1,000 rebate.
The new rebate program also rewards customers who allow PGE to shift their EV home charger’s energy use away from high demand times, when prices are high, or renewable resources are less available. This helps manage the grid and provides participants with a $25 reward at the end of each season. To learn more about the pilot program and to sign up, visit PGE’s website.
Charging Infrastructure Tax Credits
Consumers who purchase qualified residential charging equipment prior to December 31, 2021, may receive a tax credit of up to $1,000.
Commercial charging equipment installed through December 31, 2021, is eligible for a tax credit of 30% of the cost, not to exceed $30,000.
For more information about claiming the credit, see IRS Form 8911, which is available on the IRS Forms and Publications website.
