Distribution System Planning

The foundation of clean, reliable and affordable energy

About the power distribution system

Put simply, this is the network of poles, wires, transformers, substations, and other equipment used to bring power to your home or business. Our Distribution System Plan (DSP) outlines our approach to transform this system, providing a window into how we’re upgrading the grid to make it smarter, more flexible and cleaner.

Climate realities are a key driver of the transformation underway in the energy industry. It will take all of us, working together to achieve a clean energy future. This future requires a new, two-way power grid managed in partnership with customers to deliver clean, reliable and affordable power to all.

Engage in the regulatory process

The Oregon Public Utility Commission (OPUC) will review PGE's DSP through a public process. Visit the OPUC UM 2197 PGE to follow the docket, view the procedural schedule and provide comments.
