Electric vehicle drivers should see about 370 new public "Level 2" EV charging ports in communities across the state in 2024, thanks to the first funding round from Oregon's new Community Charging Rebates program.

The rebates program reimburses some of the project costs of buying and installing Level 2 EV chargers at multi-family homes and publicly accessible parking areas.

The program's first funding round ran from June through October this year and had $1.75 million available. Every dollar was awarded to communities across the state, but the only Southern Oregon city receiving new EV charging ports was Ashland.

The City of Ashland will receive four Level 2 EV chargers costing $92,500. Two will be placed in government entity rights-of-way and two will be placed in public parking lots or garages.
