Salem, OR Portland General Electric Company (PGE) has a request pending for a general rate increase with the Oregon Public Utility Commission. The utility is asking for an overall rate increase of 4.6 percent or $81.5 million annually. As proposed, a typical residential customer who uses 840 kilo-watt hours per month (kWh) would see their bill increase by about five dollars.
The Commission will hold a public comment hearing on the request to give members of the public an opportunity to weigh in: 
DATE: May 29, 2014
TIME: 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
PLACE: Jefferson High School Cafeteria
5210 N. Kerby
Portland, OR  97217


Customers of PGE and other interested persons may appear to provide comments to the Commissioners and the Administrative Law Judge presiding over the rate case.  Members of Commission Staff and representatives of PGE will also be available to answer individual questions.  Because the purpose of these meetings is to take comments from the public, there will be no formal presentations.
Interested persons who are not able to attend the public comment hearing may provide comments in writing to:
