PUC Reduces PGE Rate Increase Request

(Portland, OR) -- The Oregon Public Utility Commission is approving a rate increase for Portland General Electric, but it's much lower than the company requested. PGE wanted a 59-million dollar increase, but the PUC only allowed an increase of ten-million dollars. The rate increase is for wildfire mitigation and vegetation management, as well as operational costs. Average residential customer bills will increase three-point-six percent effective May 9th.
