PGE 2016 Price Increase
On Feb. 12, 2015, Portland General Electric asked the Oregon Public Utility Commission to approve price changes in 2016 to pay for a new power plant when it goes into service next year. This request for a potential overall price increase of 3.7 percent is the first step in a 10-month review process with several opportunities for public input.
Investing in new plants to help meet customer needs
PGE brought two new power plants online to serve our customers in late 2014 – the 267-megawatt Tucannon River Wind Farm near Dayton, Washington and the 220-megawatt natural gas-fired Port Westward Unit 2 facility near Clatskanie, Oregon. These two new generating plants are now helping PGE meet state renewable energy standards while maintaining a reliable supply of affordable power for customers. They were brought into PGE’s prices in January 2015 with an overall, OPUC approved increase in customer prices of about one percent.
Baseload plant will come online in 2016
Now, PGE is in the process of constructing a third new plant near Boardman, Oregon. The 440-megawatt Carty Generating Station will fulfill a different role, providing reliable, efficiently generated baseload power PGE can call on to serve customers under any conditions. Click here to learn more.
