More electric vehicle charging ports are coming to Deschutes and Jefferson counties.

Forty-four new ports are coming thanks to money from the Community Charging Rebates Program, which was developed by the Oregon Department of Transportation.

These new Level 2 charging ports will pop up in housing complexes and public parking lots. Seventy percent of the funding was reserved for projects in rural areas and disadvantaged communities, where ODOT says gaps in public EV charging infrastructure are largest.

“The goal of it is to reimburse most of project costs for installing level two EV chargers, publicly accessible parking areas and multi-family homes. So apartment complexes, condos, places like that,” said Oregon Department of Transportation spokesman Matt Noble.
