Portland General Electric Company (PGE)  is asking the Oregon Public Utility Commission for a general rate increase of 4.6 percent, or $81.5 million a year.

 As proposed, a typical residential customer who uses 840 kilo-watt hours per month (kWh) would see their bill increase by about five dollars.

The Commission will hold a public comment hearing on the request to give members of the public an opportunity to weigh in: 

DATE: May 29, 2014

TIME: 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.

PLACE: Jefferson High School Cafeteria

5210 N. Kerby

Portland, OR 97217

Customers of PGE and other interested persons may appear to provide comments to the Commissioners and the Administrative Law Judge presiding over the rate case. Members of Commission Staff and representatives of PGE will also be available to answer individual questions. Because the purpose of these meetings is to take comments from the public, there will be no formal presentations.

Can't attend? You can provide comments in writing to:
