Basic Service
Our standard plan


On Basic Service, your electricity price equals your actual usage each month billed at the Basic Service rate:

  • Up to 1000 kWh: 6.329 ¢ per kWh

  • >1000 kWh: 7.051 ¢ per kWh

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.

PGE has bought or plans to buy power or unique claims on the electricity produced from these types of power plants.

The portion supplied by PGE is based on recent utility production and purchases. All percentages are approximate.
