PGE offers rebate to pay customers who cut energy use

It won't matter until the clouds clear out and temperatures heat up, but a Portland General Electric program that will pay customers to use less electricity launched on Monday, the company said. Around 20,000 customers in three areas in Portland, Milwaukie and Hillsboro have automatically been enrolled. PGE expects 10 to 20 of these “events” each year, likely on hot summer evenings or cold winter mornings.
