Getting a charge at today’s launch event. (Photos: TriMet) TriMet and their partners launched five new all-electric buses at the Sunset Transit Center this morning. They claim to be the first transit agency in the nation to put fully wind-powered buses into regular service. TriMet expects to have 10 electric buses on the road by summer of next year.

Privatized energy utilities are burning down their states, but antitrust can make them stop

Pacific Gas and Electric has gone from Wall Street darling to bankruptcy, thanks to the $30 billion in liability from the fires that were started in California by its power-lines. But while any long-haul, high-voltage line carries some risk, especially in a tinder-dry, drought-ravaged, climate wracked region of California, the fires were not inevitable. Back in 2007, San Diego Gas & Electric was held liable for the Witch Fires and was forced to adopt measures to prevent fires. They worked....

PGE embraces public in push for new renewables

Portland General Electric, rocked by deep opposition to new fossil-fuel infrastructure earlier this year, is now embracing the public as an ally as it pushes for more renewables. The utility said a big new investment in renewables reflects local reaction to President Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement and the 100 percent renewables resolutions passed by Portland and Multnomah County. PGE made the point in final written arguments Friday to state regulators on a proposed… ...

PGE’s new challenge: Opposition to big renewable energy buy

After being hammered for months for entertaining the possibility of new natural gas-fired plants — and then putting that on hold— Portland General Electric is now facing opposition to its plan to spend nearly $1 billion on renewable energy in the next few years. Staff at the Oregon Public Utility Commission came down firmly against PGE’s renewable energy ambitions in final comments filed Friday on the utility’s integrated resource plan, calling the plan risky and unnecessary given that PGE… ...

PGE defends plans, trims estimate of new power needs

Portland General Electric is defending a resource plan that critics have suggested is a veiled bid to build and own another natural-gas-fired generating plant. At the same time, in a 181-page document filed with the Oregon Public Utility Commission Friday, the company stepped back from its plan in one potentially significant respect, reducing its projected capacity deficit for 2021 from 819 megawatts to 696 megawatts. Both PUC staff and industrial power users had questioned the original figure....

PGE refrain: We're not determined to build a natural gas plant

If you’ve been following our coverage, you know Portland General Electric is catching grief from environmentalists over its proposal to build a new natural gas power plant. Oops, we should say “proposal," because in PGE’s view, it’s no sure thing, no matter what the environmentalists believe. The difference in opinion between the utility and its critics is just one component of the controversy over PGE’s integrated resource plan, now before the Oregon Public Utility Commission. But it’s…
