Portland General Electric has provided electricity to customers in the northern Willamette Valley since 1889. Today, we serve over 840,000 customers within our 4,000-square mile service area, including 52 Oregon cities.
Reflecting our customers’ values
Because our customers’ values power the way we operate, serving our customers means reflecting their diverse views in the way we do business. It is why we consistently lead the nation in renewable power programs and why our company and employees are deeply involved in serving the community.
Safe, reliable power now and for the future
Looking ahead, it’s also why we’re committed to providing safe, reliable power while also caring for our environment. To accomplish this requires a broad mix of generation resources, including hydropower, thermal plants and wind power.
