Oregon Clean Energy Plan

We have a vision for a clean energy future, and we’re committed to meeting customers' needs while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

In 2021, Governor Brown signed House Bill (HB) 2021 into law, which provides an emissions-based clean energy framework for electricity providers. The goals include:

  • 80% below baseline emissions levels by 2030;
  • 90% below baseline emissions levels by 2035; and
  • 100% below baseline emissions levels by 2040.

PacifiCorp is committed to an open, transparent, and accessible process to ensure that the transition to renewable and non-carbon-emitting electricity milestones in Oregon are achieved equitably among its Oregon customers and communities.

Clean Energy Plan

The Clean Energy Plan, or CEP, is specific to Oregon customers and communities and focuses on community-based actions to meet clean energy milestones. It’s based on PacifiCorp’s 20-year, long-term planning document, known as the Integrated Resource Plan or IRP.

The first CEP will be filed with the Oregon Utilities and Transportation Commission (UTC) in March 2023 and will include the following:

  • A clean energy strategy with proposed specific actions to meet outlined milestones;
  •  Measurement of potential benefit and/or impact to communities of the resources proposed; and
  • Discussion of how PacifiCorp should comply with the requirements as it moves toward 100% renewable and non-carbon-emitting energy in Oregon.

Public Participation and Advisory Group Meetings

Throughout the development of the 2023 CEP, PacifiCorp will seek and incorporate feedback, which will help develop the company’s specific actions, interim and specific targets, and other aspects of PacifiCorp’s clean energy plan.

  • Our Community Benefits and Impacts Advisory Group helps inform and advise the company on which issues are most important to the communities we serve in Oregon.
  • As part of our update to the Transportation Electrification Plan (TEP) in Oregon, we’re engaging with our local stakeholders to engage underserved communities, identify barriers and prioritize programs.
  • Distribution System Planning outlines our strategy to make the grid smarter, more reliable and more efficient. Our workshops invite the public to participate and learn more.
  • We're working with local tribes to ensure their voices are heard as we transition to clean energy.
