As of March 1, 2002, electricity deregulation in Oregon is a reality. Portland General Electric Company, ("PGE"), has notified customers in its service territory of some of the choices and opportunities available. We want to make sure that you fully understand those choices to make so that you are positioned to buy electricity at the most competitive rates.

Basically the current choices are as follows:

  1. Traditional "cost of service" rate: This rate will fluctuate based upon actual costs to generate and deliver the power in your market. This is a good deal if energy prices remain low, but risky because increases in fuel prices, (natural gas, etc.), and other variable could drive up the consumers power bill. This rate makes for a difficult budgeting process!
  2. "Standard Offer" rate: This rate is offered by your incumbent utility as an alternative to the "cost of service" rate, and while it provides some insulation from market volatility, it may not be the lowest cost option.
  3. Alternate Electricity Provider: Large commercial and industrial customers are free to negotiate with a host of competitive electricity providers. We recommend this option if you can beat the "standard offer" rate referenced above, or if you can find an environmentally sound "green" provider that suits you. If you choose this option, be prepared to sign a fixed-term contract, and be sure to consider the potential impact of all of the contract provisions. We stand ready to assist you with the solicitation of offer, bid review and contract negotiation process. Call (866) 955-2677 and ask to speak with a Good Energy professional.
