Oregon PUC Cuts Electricity Rates by $312 Million

LCG, October 31, 2002-Yesterday the Oregon Public Utilities Commission mandated that Portland General Electric lower its retail electricity rates by 12 percent.

While PGE had asked for a 10 percent rate decrease, the OPUC ruled that the utility had entered into some less than optimum contracts and should not be allowed to recover $25.2 million.

A combined total of 125 megwatts of peak capacity was bought at an average price of $85 per megawatt-hour, amounting to $14.65 million. Hydroelectric generation costs, as well as unplanned plant outages and plant depreciation, were also added into the retail rate determination.

PGE officials say the rate decrease will have a significant financial effect and contend that all contracts it made were prudent and necessary in order to maintain available supply.

PGE, a unit of Enron Corp., serves 730,000 customers in the Portland area.
