Electric transportation and mobility

Making it easier for people, businesses and communities to move ahead with clean transportation is key to building a zero-emission future. That's why we're working to reduce our fleet’s fuel use and emissions, while teaming up with customers and communities to help expand charging infrastructure and advance electric vehicle adoption across the West. 

Paving the way for cleaner air

In 2017, we received a $4 million cost-share award from the U.S. Department of Energy to develop electric highway corridors and innovative smart mobility programs.

Since then, our focus has expanded to include a number of programs to help customers move ahead with clean transportation solutions, including: 

  • Rebates for charging equipment at homes, businesses and multifamily properties.
  • Grants, technical assistance and make-ready incentives for non-residential customers.
  • Public fast-charging stations. 
  • Innovative mobility projects to facilitate electrified highway and interstate systems, including in rural areas, and to add more fast-charging capabilities for light-duty trucks and commercial fleets, among other efforts. 

Creating electric highways

We led a collaborative effort in Utah that has installed numerous charging stations along I-15, I-80, I-70 and I-84 highway corridors — with more on the way. This means that today’s electric vehicle owners can experience the West's iconic ski resorts and national parks without worrying about running out of battery life. 

Pacific Power also joined other West Coast utilities and agencies to explore how best to provide electric vehicle charging along Interstate-5 for electric trucks to help curb air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.

Expanding community and workplace charging

Packsize International in Salt Lake City has created the largest electric vehicle charging installation in Utah. The packaging solution company installed 50 Level 2 chargers at its headquarters for use by its employees and the public. More than $110,000 in incentives from Rocky Mountain Power helped pay for the equipment.

In the Pacific Northwest, more than 80 businesses and communities have received grant funding to install charging infrastructure and advance innovative projects. The Pacific Power electric mobility grant program has awarded more than $4.5 million to communities to enable clean transportation projects since 2020. 

Advancing smart mobility innovation

We are also developing innovative programs to assist fleet operators and ride hailing companies like Uber and Lyft to convert to electric vehicles, along with advancing the use of electric bikes and buses to create an emission-free community experience.
