Community Commitment

The Portland Rose Festival

1920's Rose Festival Float

We are a utility known for our commitment to the communities we serve. Parade floats began the company’s relationship with the Portland Rose Festival. The float shown here from the 1920s, is labeled Northwestern Electric Company and Portland Gas & Coke Company – early affiliate companies in the Pacific Power family. Over the years, a strong partnership with the Portland Rose Festival developed. The company became the first sponsor of the Junior Rose Festival Parade, and continues to help develop new events like the Rose Festival Kids, the Showcase of Floats, and our current Rose Festival Court and Mentor Program sponsorship.

2010 Rose Court

Our Mentor Program sponsorship involves Pacific Power female managers mentoring each princess and connecting her with fellow women in each of the princesses’ areas of interest. These young women receive a head start to a successful professional and personal life thanks to the sharing, guidance and insights of Pacific Power women.
