Electric vehicles

The first commercial, mass-market electric vehicles (EVs) began arriving in Eugene and the rest of the nation in late 2010.

Electric vehicles present an opportunity to reduce our nation's dependence on foreign oil and lower our carbon emissions. They also create some new challenges for utilities as fuel suppliers, and electric customers.

The Eugene Water & Electric Board is committed to assisting interested customers in making the switch to an electric vehicle and preparing the grid for the future.
