At PGE, our work involves dreaming about, planning for and creating a smarter, cleaner, more enduring Oregon. It’s core to our DNA and we haven’t stopped since we started in 1889. Here are a few of the important ways we bring that Oregon kind of energy to you:
Clean, safe, and affordable power to fuel your work, your home, your dreaming and playing. All available at the flip of a switch. If only everything in life was this reliable!
The future craves a new way of thinking about energy, and it’ll need a new type of partnership among us all. One that powers your life in dynamic new ways, gives you more tools to save and earn and helps you participate in the clean energy future today.
We’re not the only ones with an Oregon kind of energy. It’s something that includes all of us – a diverse mix of individuals and communities. After all, it’s a better kind of energy when everyone gets to be a part of it.
There’s no denying climate change is upon us. Fortunately, we began working on our clean energy future years ago. We started setting goals, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, investing millions in renewable energy, creating innovative programs and solutions while establishing meaningful partnerships. And we haven’t stopped. Why? Because some things you do just because they are the right thing to do.
Someone has to do something about climate change. And that someone is us. That’s why we aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the power we serve our customers at least 80% by 2030. With a partnership between you and us we’ll create an energy ecosystem that’s dynamic, flexible, reliable and affordable, for everyone.
It’s no longer a case of we produce it, you consume it. Today’s energy is clean, fluid and dynamic – with wind, solar, smart grids, battery storage, efficiency, and innovative ideas and programs. It’s a constantly moving dance between good partners.
We’re a utility. We’re here to serve. But we also live here. So, it should be no surprise that community is at the core of what we do. For over a hundred years we’ve been investing in the needs of the communities we serve. It’s in our DNA. And always will be.
To make sure everyone has access to the clean, safe, reliable and affordable electric power they need, we engage in a complex Integrated Resource Planning process that is guided by the Oregon Public Utility Commission with generous input from the public.
We are committed to transparency as we lead the way to a clean energy future. You can view data about our operations, and learn about our sustainability practices and our impact in our annual sustainability reports.
