Oregon Utilities Agree to Phase Out Coal-Fired Power

Some great things happening in Oregon that reflect the spirit of collaboration and compromise demonstrated recently in Paris.

In recent weeks, a diverse group of utility, energy industry, advocacy organizations and community groups worked together to develop the next generation of energy policy for Oregon, transitioning Oregon away from coal towards more clean, renewable energy.

The result is a 2016 legislative proposal that would move Oregon off coal-fired generation and for PGE and Pacific Power, double Oregon’s renewable energy generation under the Renewable Portfolio Standard to 50%. It would also put Oregon’s electricity sector on the path to meeting the state’s greenhouse gas reduction goals, which call for reducing carbon emissions 75% below 1990 levels by 2050.
