PGE Issues RFP For Electric Power Generating Resources

PGE plans to submit self-build “benchmark” proposals in this competitive bidding process for new energy and capacity resources, and will also allow third-party bidders an option to submit proposals to build on PGE-owned sites -- the “Carty” site near PGE’s existing Boardman Power Plant for the baseload resource and a site adjacent to PGE’s existing Port Westward Plant for the flexible capacity resource. PGE will own and operate any resources developed on PGE’s sites.

Accion Group, Inc., an independent evaluator hired by the OPUC, will assist in conducting the RFPs and reviewing bids to assure an open and impartial process. The independent evaluator will also provide an assessment of the bid scoring, including PGE’s benchmark proposals, and short list selection resulting from the RFPs. The independent evaluator will then issue a closing report with a detailed assessment of the process and its results.

Further information on the RFPs, the workshops and the competitive bidding process is available online at
