The goal is a lofty one: get 50,000 electric vehicles registered in Oregon by 2020.  That's next year.  And the state is celebrating passing the halfway point. 

Officially, Oregon puts a lot of effort into increasing the EV fleet, with rebates for car purchases and a growing list of places to charge EVs.  Jennifer Kalez from the Oregon Department of Energy and Rachel Sakata from the Department of Environmental Quality visit to talk about goals and incentives.

Kelly Yearick from Forth Mobility joins the discussion as well.
