Smart Grid Test Bed
Rethink energy, shape the future

The way we use energy is changing, and individuals and businesses want a larger role in controlling their energy costs, reducing their carbon footprint and contributing to a clean energy future.

By working to develop flexible smart grid infrastructure, PGE will meet those demands while continuing to keep energy efficient and reliable.


Test Bed neighborhoods

To start this journey, we’re launching the Smart Grid Test Bed — a multi-year learning program around Hillsboro, Milwaukie and in North Portland.

The Test Bed will help rethink how we use energy through new technologies, programs and products, while still allowing customers to have control over their comfort settings, use more renewable energy, and keeping it reliable and affordable.

Check out the neighborhoods below to see whether your home or business is in a test bed area.
