The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT), along with charging station partner AeroVironment and the Oregon Department of Energy (ODOE), opened the first phase of the West Coast Electric Highway, which is anticipated to eventually stretch along Interstate 5 from the Canadian to Mexican borders. Plans call for more than 40 additional charging stations from AeroVironment to be operational in Oregon and Washington by the end of the year.
