City of Portland Energy Performance Reporting

Requirements for commercial buildings in Portland

The city of Portland requires commercial building owners 20,000 sq. ft. and over to annually report their energy use. This year’s deadline to report is April 22, 2017. Learn more at the city of Portland’s Energy Performance Reporting page.

You may submit your 2016 energy usage data request now. We will start processing requests on Feb. 13, 2017, when we have access to the full year’s data.

How to request your energy usage data

If you never requested energy usage data from PGE, go to the New or additional buildings to report tab.

If you previously received energy usage data from PGE for ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager reporting complete the two steps under the Requested data last year tab.

If you requested energy usage data last year AND have additional buildings that you did not request data for last year, follow the steps under both tabs below.

Requested data last year

Step 1: Email us (if necessary)

Unless you’ve already received a communication from PGE with meter numbers from the buildings reported on last year, please complete the following: Email your buildings address, building ID number provided by the city of Portland and any tenant release forms to portlandreporting@pgn.com.

Step 2: Submit tenant release forms (if required)

PGE requires signed tenant release forms from buildings with four or fewer tenants billed directly by PGE. 

You will only need to send releases for new tenants or tenants not previously submitted to PGE, including any that vacated the premises in the 2016 calendar year. 

Email the city of Portland if you have any problems acquiring tenant release forms.

Release forms can be scanned and emailed or mailed to the following address.

  • PGE Energy Reporting Administrator
  • Portland General Electric
  • 121 SW Salmon Street
  • 3WTC0402
  • Portland, OR 97204

Next steps

  1. Upon receiving your request, we will email your list of meter numbers associated with each property. Please respond to the email and either verify the meter numbers are correct or reply with any updated meter numbers.

    Meter numbers typically have 6-8 digits (examples: AB08979621, TZ010285). Please include all digits in your data request; letters are not required. There are two ways to locate meter numbers:
