In alignment with Oregon House Bill (HB) 2021, our Oregon Clean Energy Plan (CEP) lays out our path to a sustainable future for our state while delivering benefits to local communities.
Among other requirements, HB2021 mandates that retail electricity providers must reduce greenhouse gas emissions associated with electricity sold to Oregon consumers by:
Chart represents emissions reduction rates in million metric tons carbon dioxide equivalent.
To develop the best possible CEP for Oregon, we are committed to gathering stakeholder input throughout the process. We invite and encourage customers and the general public to participate in our planning discussions.
Our strategic engagement activities and opportunities include the following:
These meetings provide opportunities for all stakeholders to learn more and provide feedback on our CEP and IRP.
The CBIAG seeks stakeholder feedback to align our focus on equity with our commitment to a clean energy future.
We’re working to build a strong partnership for consultation and collaboration with Oregon Tribes.
These public workshops convene stakeholders to plan and modernize the grid.
The following provides a proposed meeting schedule, subject to change:

As we work to seek direct stakeholder feedback to build an inclusive and accessible process for consultation and collaboration, we've begun to develop a tracker of this input and questions received in our community engagements. The feedback tracker includes the feedback, responses provided, and where applicable, impact(s) or incorporation. The feedback tracker is at a point of time in the process, and it will continue to be updated with further collaboration.
Our Oregon CEP is more than an ambitious plan for decarbonization — it’s a commitment to the customers and communities we serve.
Here is a closer look at our community engagement efforts and ways you can participate in energy planning.
Our CEP work in Oregon is powered by our commitment to a clean energy future across our six-state service region. By coordinating efforts region-wide, we are simplifying and streamlining our energy transition path. Drawing on comprehensive data analysis and stakeholder input, we regularly update our Integrated Resource Plan (IRP), which serves as a roadmap for transforming the western grid at scale.
The IRP is more than a vision for the future; it is our promise to the communities we serve — one we’re already delivering on, with steady progress toward ambitious targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and transitioning to cleaner energy sources. As our 2023 IRP demonstrates, we’ve made significant headway in recent years by investing in transmission, renewable resources and market strategies — and by driving forward innovative technologies, such as batteries and advanced nuclear resources, to keep energy supplies reliable and affordable for customers across the region.
