rEV Up Eugene!

​Interested in saving $15,000 on a new electric vehicle?

The University of Oregon's Office of Sustainability teamed up with Drive Oregon and EWEB to bring free workshops about electric vehicles. Replacing your gasoline or diesel vehicle with an electric vehicle is one of the most impactful actions you can take to reduce carbon emissions. Even better? A recent MIT study shows that low-emission vehicles are less expensive to own and operate.
