Our diverse customer base has differing energy needs and budgets. We offer a number of options that will help you get the most for your electricity dollar. As a PGE business customer you can make energy choices based on what’s important to your business.
Annual Cost of Service
The Annual Cost of Service rate is PGE’s annual fixed-price energy option. This is the standard pricing plan most businesses are on.
Alternate pricing plans
Choose a market-based price such as daily pricing, or opt for Direct Access Service whereby you purchase electricity from an alternate Electric Service Supplier. Whether you choose Annual Cost of Service, daily, monthly or Direct Access, PGE will deliver power to your site.
Generate your own power
PGE customers are generating more and more of their own renewable power, chiefly through solar electric systems. If you’re interested in generating your own power and selling some or all to PGE, we offer several programs from which to choose.
When you choose renewable power you can join a searchable database of green power businesses at GreenPowerOregon.com, our online green community. You may also provide coupons on the site as a new way to reach like-minded customers.
Under this renewable power option, your actual energy use is billed at the Basic Service rate and you pay an extra fixed $3.50 monthly charge on your bill for a unit of renewable wind power. One unit purchased is equivalent to 200 kilowatt hours (kWh) of new wind generation. You can purchase as many units as you want - This is 100 percent new wind power.* You can reduce your carbon footprint for as little as 17 dollars a month, but higher support levels offer significant advertising and publicity benefits.

Charges that apply to all customers
The pricing described applies to the cost of energy and the cost of delivery. In addition, there are other PGE charges that apply regardless of your energy pricing option. These state-regulated charges include a customer charge, distribution and transmission charges and supplemental adjustments.
*You will not have electricity from a specific generation facility delivered directly to your business, but the amount of power you use will be replaced in the Western power grid by wind or a combination of renewable power, depending on the product you choose.
