This is the plan everyone starts on. On Basic Service, your electricity price equals your actual usage each month billed at the Basic Service rate:
Up to 1000 kWh: 6.642 ¢ per kWh
7.002 ¢ per kWh
If you’re a residential or small business that uses most of your electricity at night or on weekends, or you charge an electric vehicle overnight, consider switching to our Time of Day plan.
For medium and large businesses (your bill says Schedule 83, 85 or 89) your Basic Service plan already includes a lower rate for electricity used when demand is typically lower (nights and weekends).
Your bill also includes a basic charge, transmission costs, distribution costs and required adjustments.
Pricing is based directly on the cost to provide electric service and is regulated by the Oregon Public Utility Commission.
Did you know you can purchase your power from an alternate service provider, or switch to PGE’s daily market pricing? Either way, PGE still provides the reliability and service you depend on.
