Travel Oregon produced a video highlighting the results of an electric vehicle charging station rebate program developed in partnership with Forth and Durst Energy LLC. In 2018, six tourism-related businesses in Oregon received $5,000 rebates for successfully installing electric vehicle charging stations as an amenity for visitors. The station locations were selected to fill gap areas in the statewide charging network, giving better electric vehicle access across Oregon. This new infrastructure also supports Governor Kate Brown’s executive order to have 50,000 electric vehicles registered in Oregon by 2020.
The original article about the program is available in the Oregon Business Magazine.
