Our Power Plants

PGE meets our area’s growing energy demands with a diverse mix of generation facilities that includes water power, wind, coal and natural gas combustion. See the chart below for the generating capabilities of our seven hydroelectric plants, two wind farms and seven thermal plants.

We also own major transmission rights to the Pacific Intertie, the West Coast electrical superhighway. These power exchange lines give us the flexibility to buy and sell power to other utilities when it’s not needed by our customers.

We manage the output of our own power plants in conjunction with available power supplies on the wholesale market to deliver power to our customers at the lowest price possible.
