    100 MW of Renewables Could be Added in Portland - required by 2015 to hit 15%, & 25% by 2025

    100 MW of Renewables Could be Added in Portland

    October 9, 2012 By Jake Richardson Leave a Comment

    Portland’s utility, the Portland General Electric Company, is requesting proposals for the development of 100 MW of renewable energy. It will consider projects from hydroelectric, solar, biogas, geothermal, and wind energy.

    Smaller projects must be at least 10 MW. They will also accept proposals for one very large project. The extra power created by the renewable energy developments is expected to be operational between 2013 and 2017.

    “This RFP will be an important step in meeting the state’s renewable power goals, and together with our separate RFP for baseload and capacity resources will help solidify our ability to continue providing reliable, affordable power to our customers for years to come,” said Jim Lobdell, PGE’s vice president.

    About 11% of the utility’s energy currently comes from renewables. It is required by 2015 to hit 15%, and 25% by 2025. If it expands by 100 MW by 2017, it will have far more than the entire state of Georgia has currently.
