State Agency Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Station Installation

State agencies may install publicly accessible EV charging stations on their premises or contract with a vendor to do so. The Oregon Department of Administrative Services (DAS) will establish criteria to determine the appropriate number of locations for EV charging stations at each agency. A state agency may establish and adjust a uniform price for charging, provided that the price recovers, to the extent practicable, the cost of operating the EV charging station and does not exceed 110% of the average market price for the use of public EV charging stations. DAS will report to the Legislative Assembly on the number, cost, and utilization of EV charging stations installed by state agencies by February 2019, February 2021, and February 2023.

DAS must add electric vehicle (EV) charging capacity for employee and public visitor parking lots, develop contracts to procure and install charging infrastructure, and incorporate EV charging as a tenant improvement for state-leased buildings.
