How Much Does it Cost to Charge an Electric Vehicle in Portland? 

Portland and the surrounding area have nearly 1,000 public electric vehicle chargers at press time! Vancouver drivers shouldn’t have any problem finding a Porland EV charger without going out of their way. Over 400 of those chargers are in Portland city limits. Not only that, but many companies, apartment complexes, and stores have public fast-charging stations available for your usage. The Alternative Fuels Data Center can help you find the chargers most convenient to you, not just in Portland but anywhere in the U.S. 

How much does it cost to charge an electric vehicle in Portland when using one of the city’s public chargers? That depends entirely on the vendor of the charging station. Most vendors offer loyalty benefits, so consider subscribing to the vendors whose chargers you use the most. The brands include:

Home Charger Options

When drivers think of installing a home charger, they might think they need to have a garage or driveway. That’s not necessarily true. Portland has been extremely friendly in making home curbside charging a possibility.
