SALEM, Ore. – Beginning April 15, residential and small-farm customers of Portland General Electric (PGE) will see their rates decrease by over 6%, a savings of $5.80 per month for an average customer using 900 kWh monthly, the Public Utility Commission announced Tuesday.
The reduction was made possible due to the restoration of Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) interim benefits.
“We’ve worked non-stop with BPA, regulators, and other utilities throughout the region to bring this credit back,” said Jim Lobdell, PGE vice president for power operations and resource strategy. “This interim agreement is an important step that will immediately benefit our customers.”
