UE 435-10 2/27/2024 12:31:53 AM 2/21/2024 11:18:24 AM General Comment Email frank12425portland@gmail.com I am interested in understanding when we the consumer became responsible for a company’s failure to perform maintenance? As a facilities manager in my past life we planned and budget led for such things. Frank C.
UE 435-100 3/2/2024 11:23:28 AM PORTLAND GENERAL ELECTRIC Oppose Docket Web Robert Richards BEAVERTON I am disappointed to hear of PGE request to change rates. While I sympathize with the challenges that our country has faced due to inflation, I cannot believe that this change is warranted. We are seeing record numbers of solar installations, with lower costs, longer life of cells, and ultimately a cheaper KWH/hr cost than more traditional sources such as coal or natural gas. Where is PGE spending this additional money and what oversight do we have of this privatized monopoly? Where do we see these funds going and how is PGE a justified as the single source supplier for these changes? This little oversight is not tolerated in the defense industry or other government contracts; why is it allowed here? PGE should have to provide a bid to keep their contract with us, and it should be open to a competitive bid process. We should not be held to whims of this monopoly, they should provide value to us, they should be competing to lower rates compared to what others would offer.
UE 435-1000 3/27/2024 12:34:30 AM 3/23/2024 4:07:42 PM General Comment Email gordonananda@everyactioncustom.com Dear Public Comments Oregon Public Utility Commission, I am writing to comment on the Portland General Electric rate case (UE 435). As a PGE customer, I strongly encourage the Commission to reject PGE’s request to raise rates by 7.2% for Oregon households. Thousands of PGE customers are still reeling from the rate increase and ice storm bills this January. PGE’s rates for Oregon households have already gone up by 30% from December 2022 to January 2024. People cannot afford these increases. Now is not the time to entertain PGE’s unreasonable request to raise bills. We are counting on you, the Commission, to put a stop to this and protect customers like me. PGE has requested $202 million (7.2%) under the guise of needing more money for battery storage projects. Only about $17 million is for battery storage. Instead, this case is a wishlist for management and includes many issues the Commission rejected just months ago. We cannot keep allowing utilities to continuously ask for the same bad policy over and over again. Please dismiss this case and tell PGE that enough is enough.

UE 435-101 3/2/2024 11:29:55 AM PORTLAND GENERAL ELECTRIC Oppose Docket Web Julie Ramos PORTLAND Enough already. This would be the third rate hike in three years. Three years ago my rates varied from $30-$125, currently $60-$175, and now they want another request. As a retired person living on fixed income and my whole house dependent on electricity, I can't afford this continued increases. My income is a few hundred dollars over the eligibility requirements for financial assistance. Here in Portland all utilities increased - garbage, water, electricity. The CEO of PGE makes $51.2 million/year yet they keep raising the rates. Perhaps instead of increasing the rates they should decrease her salary. I can not believe that this greed and excess is allowed while the public has to bear the brunt of improvement and stabilization of services. This is criminal.

UE 435-103 3/2/2024 11:42:26 AM PORTLAND GENERAL ELECTRIC Oppose Docket Web BEAVERTON Another PGE rate hike in 2025, on top of a HUGE rate hike in 2024 and previous rate hikes in 2023 and 2022, would make our electricity rates 42% more than they were just 3 years ago. That’s unconscionable. Our income has not gone up in that time. Inflation is high, but it’s not 42% in 3 years high. And I have zero choice as a consumer but to pay these rates. PGE is a monopoly, and if the PUC is doing its job it would be looking out for consumers. Right now, it’s letting PGE run wild with rate increases for superfluous improvements. The battery upgrades are not necessary at this point in time. Give consumers a year break. I strongly oppose this rate increase.

UE 435-105 3/2/2024 12:03:13 PM PORTLAND GENERAL ELECTRIC General Comment Web PORTLAND PGE rates are already high enough to be a cost burden to many people, especially as climate change advances and causes more severe weather with potentially fatal temperatures in both summer and winter. Affordable heat and cooling must be viewed as a human right and raising rates more will force many to choose between heat exhaustion, freezing and other necessities such as food.

As a PGE customer, I strongly encourage the Commission to reject PGE’s request to raise rates by 7.2% for Oregon households. Thousands of PGE customers are still reeling from the rate increase and ice storm bills this January. PGE’s rates for Oregon households have already gone up by 30% from December 2022 to January 2024. People cannot afford these increases. Now is not the time to entertain PGE’s unreasonable request to raise bills. We are counting on you, the Commission, to put a stop to this and protect customers like me. PGE has requested $202 million (7.2%) under the guise of needing more money for battery storage projects. Only about $17 million is for battery storage. Instead, this case is a wishlist for management and includes many issues the Commission rejected just months ago. We cannot keep allowing utilities to continuously ask for the same bad policy over and over again. Please dismiss this case and tell PGE that enough is enough.

UE 435-107 3/2/2024 1:26:52 PM PORTLAND GENERAL ELECTRIC Oppose Docket Web Clayton Morgan HILLSBORO I am writing to express opposition to the aggressive rate increases by Portland General Electric. I am a Washington County resident and a PGE customer. We have no choice in providers or vote in rate increases. PGE's commitment to improve existing infrastructure and rectify regular outages is profoundly underwhelming. If PGE's claim that the legislature, via HB 2021, has literally forced them to raise rates more than 40% since 2020, then please publicly let us all know so we can direct outrage in that direction, too. I hope the Commission can scrutinize PGE's compensation structure for executives and shareholders, particularly during a time when everyday people are trying to bounce back economically from the pandemic. Thanks for your service to the community, and I hope you will think of the consumers as you deliberate PGE's proposal.

As a PGE customer, I strongly encourage the Commission to reject PGE’s request to raise rates by 7.2% for Oregon households. Thousands of PGE customers are still reeling from the rate increase and ice storm bills this January. PGE’s rates for Oregon households have already gone up by 30% from December 2022 to January 2024. People cannot afford these increases. Now is not the time to entertain PGE’s unreasonable request to raise bills. We are counting on you, the Commission, to put a stop to this and protect customers like me. PGE has requested $202 million (7.2%) under the guise of needing more money for battery storage projects. Only about $17 million is for battery storage. Instead, this case is a wishlist for management and includes many issues the Commission rejected just months ago. We cannot keep allowing utilities to continuously ask for the same bad policy over and over again. Please dismiss this case and tell PGE that enough is enough.

UE 435-109 3/2/2024 4:02:30 PM PORTLAND GENERAL ELECTRIC Oppose Docket Web Terri Nelson PORTLAND I would like to request an investigation to find out whether the proposed rate hike is proportional to PGE's infrastructure costs. Further, I believe this is a permanent hike in rates, and although this increase is ostensibly to pay for batteries to comply with HB 2021, I think that HB 2021 required any hikes to be temporary.

At what point is it enough? It feels crazy to have to point out how unreasonable these utility hikes are. If competition was allowed and we had a choice, or if the company was on the verge of bankruptcy, that might be different. But instead, the utility is very healthy, and prioritizing returns over customers. Please remember that families are already struggling, and these rate hikes have incredibly real repercussions when it comes to people choosing a/c and heat. Consumers don't have a choice, but luckily, PGE doesn't either. They have to take the deal they make with the county. Grow a backbone and stand up to them, for us.

UE 435-11 2/29/2024 4:36:08 PM PORTLAND GENERAL ELECTRIC Oppose Docket Web Reid Zielissai PORTLAND PGE has increased last 3 years, totaling 45%. Does not know how people can live with these kind of increases. There will be more homeless people that can not afford to live. He also stated that he feels all of the comissioners that have left, have gone to private industry and are benefitting from the increases.
UE 435-110 3/2/2024 4:03:18 PM PORTLAND GENERAL ELECTRIC Oppose Docket Web Liam Compton LAKE OSWEGO I strongly disagree with PGE rate hike. We have been getting rates hikes every year for no discernible improvement in service. I live in lake Oswego and the storm we had seemingly caught PGE off guard despite the crazy amounts of warning. I'm not saying that they are responsible for a weather event but it is literally their sole job to keep the power on and we already got a rate increase at the beginning of this year. They are proposing that they're going to be using this money for batteries, but I really don't have much faith in PGE at this point. We really should not allow this corporation to squeeze money out of the pockets of the people. I understand they have programs for people living in low income situations and that's great but it doesn't really affect that many people in the grand scheme of things. What we need to do right now is either look for ways to transition PGE into being a public utility or we need to find ways to keep the cost of electricity down as it really feels like we are just being squeezed dry for the sake of lining some pockets.

Thousands of PGE customers are still reeling from the rate increase and ice storm bills this January. PGE’s rates for Oregon households have already gone up by 30% from December 2022 to January 2024. People cannot afford these increases. Now is not the time to entertain PGE’s unreasonable request to raise bills. We are counting on you, the Commission, to put a stop to this and protect customers like me. PGE has requested $202 million (7.2%) under the guise of needing more money for battery storage projects. Only about $17 million is for battery storage. Instead, this case is a wishlist for management and includes many issues the Commission rejected just months ago. We cannot keep allowing utilities to continuously ask for the same bad policy over and over again. Please dismiss this case and tell PGE that enough is enough.

As a PGE customer, I strongly encourage the Commission to reject PGE’s request to raise rates by 7.2% for Oregon households. We need to know that our policy makers have our peoples backs. We need to only ask our community to pay whats actually reasonable. We cant keep being asked for more and more at an unreasonable rate. Thousands of PGE customers are still reeling from the rate increase and ice storm bills this January. PGE’s rates for Oregon households have already gone up by 30% from December 2022 to January 2024.

We are counting on you, the Commission, to put a stop to this and protect customers like me. A lot of us are living paycheck to paycheck. Every dollar counts. Over-drafting your account by $0.50, can cause a $35-$60 fee. These changes matter. PGE has requested $202 million (7.2%) under the guise of needing more money for battery storage projects.

UE 435-111 3/2/2024 4:28:43 PM PORTLAND GENERAL ELECTRIC Oppose Docket Web Melanie Fletcher SHERIDAN Dear Oregon Public Utility Commission, I am writing to express my profound concern and dissatisfaction regarding the recent announcement of rate increases by Portland General Electric (PGE). As a resident of Sheridan, living at 14619 SW Gopher Valley Road, I have been a loyal customer of PGE, relying on their services for my daily needs. It has come to my attention that PGE plans to increase their pricing rates. This decision is particularly disheartening because it seems to disregard the current economic challenges faced by many Oregonians, myself included. The lack of significant infrastructure improvements or movements to justify such an increase adds to my frustration. Moreover, despite these proposed rate hikes, I, along with other residents, continue to experience frequent power outages, which further questions the rationale behind increasing the financial burden on consumers. The absence of tangible enhancements in service delivery and infrastructure, coupled with the continuous inconvenience of power disruptions, raises concerns about the justification for this rate adjustment. It is crucial for utility providers like PGE to ensure that any increase in rates is matched with proportional improvements in service quality, reliability, and customer satisfaction. Lastly, consumers of essential utilities generally do not have a choice of provider. Unfortunately, I do not have the option to choose a different provider of electric services and "vote with my dollars" like I do with literally every other service I use. It is vital that any increase in rates be carefully reviewed to ensure that it's fair to consumers and does not impact consumers negatively without any benefits. Therefore, I urge the Oregon Public Utility Commission to thoroughly review PGE's proposal for rate increases. It is essential to ensure that any adjustments are reasonable, justified by concrete improvements, and considerate of the economic impact on Oregon residents. I look forward to your response and hope for a favorable review of this matter. Please consider the implications of these rate increases on consumers like myself, who depend on PGE for essential services but are left questioning the value and reliability of these services in light of recent developments. Thank you for your attention to this matter and for advocating on behalf of Oregon's utility consumers.

UE 435-112 3/2/2024 5:35:21 PM PORTLAND GENERAL ELECTRIC General Comment Web Adrianne B LAKE OSWEGO This proposed rate increase my PGE is absolutely outrageous. We are already paying some of the highest utility bills in the country, and the fact that PGE wants to institute such a high rate increase is absurd. They feel more and more like a monopoly and the people of Portland have had enough. Why would we want to continue paying these fees and we’re still dealing with the power outages caused by storms?

UE 435-113 3/2/2024 5:50:06 PM PORTLAND GENERAL ELECTRIC Oppose Docket Web Joseph Kirk PORTLAND I find it distressing that such increases are being proposed, particularly considering the economic challenges faced by many individuals and families in our city. It is evident that these rate hikes will place a significant burden on a large portion of Portland's population, especially those who already struggle to make ends meet on modest incomes. Many hardworking individuals in our community barely earn a decent wage and find it increasingly difficult to afford basic necessities, let alone the additional financial strain that higher utility bills will bring. For countless Portlanders, affordable housing is already a pressing issue, with rent prices continuously rising beyond the reach of many. Adding further financial pressure through increased utility costs will only exacerbate the situation, forcing individuals and families to make impossible choices between paying for essential services like electricity and meeting other critical needs such as housing, food, and healthcare. Moreover, these rate hikes disproportionately affect vulnerable populations, including low-income households, seniors, and individuals with disabilities who are already marginalized in our society. It is imperative that any decisions regarding rate increases take into account the broader socioeconomic impact on the most vulnerable members of our community. As a responsible and community-minded utility provider, Portland General Electric has a duty to consider the well-being of all its customers, especially those who are most financially vulnerable. I urge you to reevaluate the proposed rate hikes and explore alternative solutions that prioritize affordability and equity. This may include seeking efficiencies within the company's operations, exploring renewable energy options, and advocating for policies that support fair utility pricing for all. Failure to do so will only deepen the economic hardships faced by many in our city and undermine the principles of community solidarity that we hold dear.

Take the bonuses and apply that cost saving measure to the publics "rate" of using electricity.
UE 435-114 3/2/2024 8:07:37 PM PORTLAND GENERAL ELECTRIC Oppose Docket Web Grey Dodds PORTLAND It is infuriating to see the greed on display by PGE with another request for a rate increase after the last two years. They are more profitable than ever and we already have unusually expensive power and water costs in this area compared to much of the rest of the country, the vast majority of which are not consumption-based but high base fees. I will have zero faith in OPUC as a regulator if this continues. This should be the easiest denial decision in a very long time. Time to prove if you serve the public, or just rubberstamp what public utilities ask for.

UE 435-115 3/2/2024 9:38:02 PM PORTLAND GENERAL ELECTRIC Oppose Docket Web Jesse Lawrence GRESHAM Dear Oregon Public Utility Commission, I am writing to express my profound concern and dissatisfaction regarding the recent announcement of rate increases by Portland General Electric (PGE). As a resident of the greater Portland area, living in Gresham, I have been a customer of PGE for years, relying on their services for my daily needs. It has come to my attention that PGE wanting another price rate increase . This decision is particularly disheartening because it seems to disregard the current economic challenges faced by many Oregonians and this news comes immediately after a recent rate increase. The lack of significant infrastructure improvements or movements to justify such an increase adds to my frustration given the recent problems we've already dealt with. Moreover, despite these proposed rate hikes, I, along with other residents, continue to experience frequent power outages which further questions the rationale behind increasing the financial burden on consumers. The absence of tangible enhancements in service delivery and infrastructure coupled with the continuous inconvenience of power disruptions raises concerns about the justification for this rate adjustment. It is crucial for utility providers like PGE to ensure that any increase in rates is matched with proportional improvements in service quality, reliability, and customer satisfaction. That said, I urge the Oregon Public Utility Commission to thoroughly review PGE's proposal for rate increases. It is essential to ensure that any adjustments are reasonable, justified by concrete improvements, and considerate of the economic impact on Oregon residents. Doubly so as we as consumers lack much choice in who supplies our energy needs. I look forward to your response and hope for a favorable review of this matter. Please consider the implications of these rate increases on consumers like myself, who depend on PGE for essential services but are left questioning the value and reliability of these services in light of recent developments. Thank you for your attention to this matter and for advocating on behalf of Oregon's utility consumers.

UE 435-118 3/3/2024 2:49:36 PM PORTLAND GENERAL ELECTRIC Oppose Docket Web Loren Behrman BANKS PGE hasn't focused on needed upgrades in the past ignoring infrastructure and finding expensive pet projects. Now with the last few increases power is unaffordable to many, and by their intent it is to make PGE and its investors happy. I am not allowed to choose my power company, I am not allowed to make my choice with my dollar to help PGE improve itself in any way, I have no say in the management of a private company that overpays its employees, and ignores needed public safety and infrastructure. Now they want us to take another 7% of our income and dedicate it to them.....no thanks! Spend what you already make on needed infrastructure improvements and safety upgrades and stop pissing more money away for pet projects that sound "green". Have them start proving that they want to be a power supplier that understands basic economics.

As a PGE customer, I strongly encourage the Commission to reject PGE’s request to raise rates by 7.2% for Oregon households. Thousands of PGE customers are still reeling from the rate increase and ice storm bills this January. PGE’s rates for Oregon households have already gone up by 30% from December 2022 to January 2024. People cannot afford these increases. Now is not the time to entertain PGE’s unreasonable request to raise bills. We are counting on you, the Commission, to put a stop to this and protect customers like me. PGE has requested $202 million (7.2%) under the guise of needing more money for battery storage projects. Only about $17 million is for battery storage. Instead, this case is a wishlist for management and includes many issues the Commission rejected just months ago. We cannot keep allowing utilities to continuously ask for the same bad policy over and over again. Please dismiss this case and tell PGE that enough is enough.

UE 435-12 2/29/2024 4:36:17 PM PORTLAND GENERAL ELECTRIC Oppose Docket Web Jon Smith BEAVERTON The proposed rate revision is higher than wage growth or inflation, and with so many service providers raising rates unbounded, this seems an onerous amount, especially for customers whose earnings don't get raises to offset their own rising costs.
UE 435-120 3/3/2024 4:02:19 PM PORTLAND GENERAL ELECTRIC Oppose Docket Web Grace Alston PORTLAND This rate hike will make electricity unaffordable, full-stop, for low-income people. Electricity must not become a luxury. We, as consumers, should not be price gouged in the name of grid improvements. I'm not convinced this rate won't go towards stock PGE buy-backs, executive bonuses, or shareholder dividends.

The reopening of the clean vehicle rebate program between April and June of 2024 is applaudable. Unfortunately for people who already own electric vehicles and who live in multi-family dwellings including condominiums, apartments etc. built before a certain year when the requirement to include charging station infrastructure in those started, are still not likely to benefit from a rebate of the cost buying an electric vehicle. The cost to install charging stations and the cost of energy to charge an electric vehicle from our local electric companies is cost prohibitive, including from Portland General Electric, who just raised their rates by 18% and are wanting to raise them again by another 7%. Until the state of Oregon rewards lower income residents who live in multi family dwellings built before electric vehicle ev charging infrastructure was required with rebates commensurate with the cost of installing charging stations and using them the state of Oregon will not truly be supporting electric vehicles usage.

Thousands of PGE customers are still reeling from the rate increase and ice storm bills this January. PGE’s rates for Oregon households have already gone up by 30% from December 2022 to January 2024. People cannot afford these increases. Now is not the time to entertain PGE’s unreasonable request to raise bills. We are counting on you, the Commission, to put a stop to this and protect customers like me. PGE has requested $202 million (7.2%) under the guise of needing more money for battery storage projects. Only about $17 million is for battery storage. Instead, this case is a wishlist for management and includes many issues the Commission rejected just months ago. We cannot keep allowing utilities to continuously ask for the same bad policy over and over again. Please dismiss this case and tell PGE that enough is enough. Sincerely, Mrs. Paige Icardi 13131 NE Glisan St Portland, OR 97230-2546 paigeicardi@gmail.com

It appears to be a reflection of greed rather than need. The public should not support the burden of excessive executive/administrative salaries.

Anything done directly on behalf of shareholders/executives should not land on the public who rely on this monopoly.

As a PGE customer, I strongly encourage the Commission to reject PGE’s request to raise rates by 7.2% for Oregon households. Thousands of PGE customers are still reeling from the rate increase and ice storm bills this January, myself included. PGE’s rates for Oregon households have already gone up by 30% from December 2022 to January 2024. Households like mine on a limited budget cannot afford these increases. Now is not the time to entertain PGE’s unreasonable request to raise bills. We are counting on you, the Commission, to put a stop to this and protect customers like me. PGE has requested $202 million (7.2%) under the guise of needing more money for battery storage projects. Only about $17 million is for battery storage. Instead, this case is a wishlist for management and includes many issues the Commission rejected just months ago. We cannot keep allowing utilities to continuously ask for the same bad policy over and over again. Please dismiss this case and tell PGE that enough is enough.

UE 435-124 3/4/2024 2:02:10 PM PORTLAND GENERAL ELECTRIC Oppose Docket Web Philip Munson BEAVERTON I am a customer of PGE since I moved to Oregon in 2011. In 2017, I joined the Time-of-Use plan with PGE to maximize my solar panel savings, reduce overall electricity costs (especially due to EV charging), and reduce the impact to the grid. For 2024, I have been hit disproportionately hard by the increase of PGE's rates. And this continues even more into 2025. Although this affects only ~1% of PGE customers, we are the ones that are doing more than anyone else to reduce the impact to the grid during peak times. During such times, PGE is needing to buy much more expensive electricity. With our efforts to shift our usage to mid or off-peak, we are not only improving the grid performance, but also allowing PGE to save significant amounts of money. For my data, I present my general usage of energy by peak times over 2023 and show the impact of PGE's rate increases. My off-peak usage accounts for 74%, mid-peak 13% and on-peak 13% with a total usage of 9362kWh. * With 2024 rate increases for Time of Use, this nets a 37% increase for off-peak, 27% increase for mid-peak and a 26% increase for on-peak. This is a net of 34% energy cost increase. * In 2024, PGE also announced a new Time of Day plan to replace Time of Use and Time of Use will expire by the end of 2024. On this new Time of Day plan in 2024, my rates vs 2023 would net a 123% increase for off-peak, 5% reduction for mid-peak, and an 88% increase of on-peak. This is a net increase of 101%. That means my costs will have doubled! Who approved this?? * Time of Day 2024 compared to 2024 Time of Use rates, this is a 63% increase for off-peak, 25% reduction for mid-peak, and 48% increase for on-peak with a net increase of 49%. * For 2025 suggested Time of Day rates, this becomes even more disproportionately high for off-peak usage. Compare to 2023 Time of Use rates, this will be an increase of 190% for off-peak, 3% for mid-peak, and 87% for on-peak. For a net increase of 152%! * 2025 Time of Day compared to 2024 Time of Use sees a 112% increase for off-peak, 19% reduction in mid-peak and a 48% increase for on-peak, for a net increase of 86%. * 2025 Time of Day compared to 2024 Time of Day sees a 30% increase for off-peak, 8% increase in mid-peak, and a 0% increase for on-peak, for a net increase of 23%. As you can see, because of my high off-peak usage, I am hit disproportionately hard by their rate changes. And the purpose of these plans are to move customers away from mid and on-peak towards off-peak. It is easiest enough to say that "overall, customers will only see an increase of 7.4%", but the 1% of customers that are doing their part are getting overlooked and their rates are increasing by an inordinate amount. Please do something about this. PGE should not be allowed to increase these rates so significantly. Also, if PGE wants to increase the number of customers that will help with grid reliance and saving costs during peak times, they need to provide a more reasonable rates for customers on Time of Use and Time of Day. In addition, EV charging is becoming more popular and will have a bigger impact to the grid. If PGE and Oregon want to support more EV vehicles and EV charging at home, then they need to look closely at these rates that are attempting to shift usage away from peak times. With rates as high as they will be for 2025, there will be very little incentive for customers to stay/join Time of Day rate plans. Not only is a strict schedule (and corresponding inconvenience) required to ensure you don’t incur high costs during on-peak, there will always be energy usage during on-peak. No one can cut out 100% of their usage and shift everything to off-peak.

I have no choice on who provides my electricity and therefore it’s a monopoly. Why are rate payers required to bail out PGE - they need to manage there losses.

UE 435-1242 3/28/2024 2:12:31 PM PORTLAND GENERAL ELECTRIC Oppose Docket Web Mary Hoeft SALEM I am a PGE customer and I oppose the proposed rate increases PGE is requesting for 2025. I am a low income individual, and I am on a very limited budget and these increases on top of the ones that were approved for 2024, which was too high, is not right. The discounts they offer are NOT enough to help and people are finding themselves with having to choose between heat or food. Wages and incomes are not going up like its reported at least not compared to these increases and the "discounts for low-income households" isn't high enough to even help. I think PGE should eat the cost of any upgrades or other technologies they want to implement. That is a choice not a federal requirement, at least not I am aware of, therefore they should eat the cost and customers shouldn't be forced to absorb it. The impact on people's incomes and abilities to pay and keep heat in their homes should be taken in consideration more than any profit they could make off of it and I am not the only one who believes that the increases they implemented this year was WAY TOO HIGH.

UE 435-125 3/4/2024 3:38:32 PM PORTLAND GENERAL ELECTRIC General Comment Web Justin Luther PORTLAND Dear Oregon Public Utility Commission, I am writing to express my profound concern and dissatisfaction regarding the recent announcement of rate increases by Portland General Electric (PGE). As a resident of Portland, I have been a loyal customer of PGE, relying on their services for my daily needs. It has come to my attention that PGE plans to increase their pricing rates. This decision is particularly disheartening because it seems to disregard the current economic challenges faced by many Oregonians, myself included. The lack of significant infrastructure improvements or movements to justify such an increase adds to my frustration. Moreover, despite these proposed rate hikes, I, along with other residents, continue to experience frequent power outages, which further questions the rationale behind increasing the financial burden on consumers. The absence of tangible enhancements in service delivery and infrastructure, coupled with the continuous inconvenience of power disruptions, raises concerns about the justification for this rate adjustment. It is crucial for utility providers like PGE to ensure that any increase in rates is matched with proportional improvements in service quality, reliability, and customer satisfaction. Therefore, I urge the Oregon Public Utility Commission to thoroughly review PGE's proposal for rate increases. It is essential to ensure that any adjustments are reasonable, justified by concrete improvements, and considerate of the economic impact on Oregon residents. I look forward to your response and hope for a favorable review of this matter. Please consider the implications of these rate increases on consumers like myself, who depend on PGE for essential services but are left questioning the value and reliability of these services in light of recent developments. Thank you for your attention to this matter and for advocating on behalf of Oregon's utility consumers.

Now is not the time to entertain PGE’s unreasonable request to raise bills. We are counting on you, the Commission, to put a stop to this and protect customers like me. PGE has requested $202 million (7.2%) under the guise of needing more money for battery storage projects. Only about $17 million is for battery storage. Instead, this case is a wishlist for management and includes many issues the Commission rejected just months ago. We cannot keep allowing utilities to continuously ask for the same bad policy over and over again. Please dismiss this case and tell PGE that enough is enough.

UE 435-126 3/4/2024 4:53:13 PM PORTLAND GENERAL ELECTRIC Oppose Docket Web Tess McCoskey NEWBERG March 4, 2024 Re: Portland General Electric – Rate Hike Increase for 2025 Dear Oregon Public Utilities Commission: As a senior citizen and Portland General Electric customer, I want to record my strong opposition to the proposed rate increase by Portland General Electric for 2025 for any amount. As you are aware, the following increases have already been approved for this utility: 8% in 2022 (34.4% + 8% = 42.4%) 9% in 2023 (25.4% + 9% = 34.4%) 18% in 2024 (7.4% + 18% = 25.4%) With the proposed increase of 7.4% in 2025, that will bring the total increase in our rate pricing to a whopping 42.4% at a time when there are exorbitant increases on everything from food, services, other goods, healthcare, utilities, etc. This unconscionable rate increase request tantamount to extortion and exorbitant give the last increase of 18% along with the most recent multiple rate increases. . The recent rate increases are devastating and doing immense damage to the current living standard and quality of life for all Oregonians not to mention seniors in general. I, along with my neighbors and friends here in Newberg and locally cannot comprehend the justification for the raising of the rates just shortly out of the crushing pandemic and while our inflation rates on everything are so very high. To top it off, Maria Pope, the CEO of Portland General Electric is recorded as receiving $6,256,599 in total compensation in 2022, which I am certain is has vastly increased since that date. Instead of requesting more money, the company should be cutting back on their expenditures like their own pay increase, Green/Renewable Energy, and EV programs. I ask that you please reject Portland General Electric’s request for the rate increase. Thank you for your attention to this matter. Sincerely, Tess McCoskey Newberg, OR

People cannot afford these increases. Now is not the time to entertain PGE’s unreasonable request to raise bills. We are counting on you, the Commission, to put a stop to this and protect customers like me. PGE has requested $202 million (7.2%) under the guise of needing more money for battery storage projects. Only about $17 million is for battery storage. Instead, this case is a wishlist for management and includes many issues the Commission rejected just months ago. We cannot keep allowing utilities to continuously ask for the same bad policy over and over again. Please dismiss this case and tell PGE that enough is enough.

UE 435-128 3/5/2024 6:08:02 AM PORTLAND GENERAL ELECTRIC Oppose Docket Web Chris Riddell PORTLAND Dear Oregon Public Utility Commission, I am writing to express my profound concern and dissatisfaction regarding the recent announcement of rate increases by Portland General Electric (PGE). As a resident of Portland, living at 2114 SE Hemlock Ave, Portland, OR 97214, I have been a loyal customer of PGE, relying on their services for my daily needs. It has come to my attention that PGE plans to increase their pricing rates. This decision is particularly disheartening because it seems to disregard the current economic challenges faced by many Oregonians, myself included. The lack of significant infrastructure improvements or movements to justify such an increase adds to my frustration. Moreover, despite these proposed rate hikes, I, along with other residents, continue to experience frequent power outages, which further questions the rationale behind increasing the financial burden on consumers. The absence of tangible enhancements in service delivery and infrastructure, coupled with the continuous inconvenience of power disruptions, raises concerns about the justification for this rate adjustment. It is crucial for utility providers like PGE to ensure that any increase in rates is matched with proportional improvements in service quality, reliability, and customer satisfaction. Therefore, I urge the Oregon Public Utility Commission to thoroughly review PGE's proposal for rate increases. It is essential to ensure that any adjustments are reasonable, justified by concrete improvements, and considerate of the economic impact on Oregon residents. I look forward to your response and hope for a favorable review of this matter. Please consider the implications of these rate increases on consumers like myself, who depend on PGE for essential services but are left questioning the value and reliability of these services in light of recent developments. Thank you for your attention to this matter and for advocating on behalf of Oregon's utility consumers.

UE 435-129 3/1/2024 6:33:04 PM PORTLAND GENERAL ELECTRIC General Comment Web Sandy Berger HILLSBORO It’s my understanding that, together with the PGE proposed rate increase for 2025, that rates will have risen by approximately 39% since 2023. With increased rates for Pacific Power, and the increased cost of food and rent, the cumulative effect for senior citizens and low income Oregonians is not sustainable. I would hope that rather than low income individuals applying for utility discounts, that PGE and other utilities would exempt any Oregon customer who qualifies for SNAP benefits.

As a PGE customer, I strongly encourage the Commission to reject PGE’s request to raise rates by 7.2% for Oregon households. Continuing to raise rates at a ratio that is FAR above cost of living and necessary is unconscionable. With skyrocketing costs that do not equitably benefit customers, we are continuing to add to the divide between rich and poor. A 30% raise in 2 years is absolutely ludicrous. PGE has already been given far more than is necessary to cover the improvements they are making. Stop giving in to their unreasonable demands and put the people first.

UE 435-13 2/29/2024 5:02:57 PM PORTLAND GENERAL ELECTRIC Oppose Docket Web Margaret L SALEM Please do not approve PGE's request for a rate increase. They already got one, and it's been devastating. Everyone I know was horrified by their increased energy bills this year. The average person's wallet is already strained right now, between out-of-control grocery prices, rent increases, and employers refusing to give anyone enough hours to live on. My family is struggling financially. We can't possibly "save energy" any more than we already are, and we can't possibly "save money" on anything else. There are no frivolities left to cut. We don't have streaming services or cable TV. We don't go out to eat anymore. We have the cheapest internet and phone service we can get that meets our work needs. We can barely afford basic necessities. Yes, we know about their income-qualified discount-- it barely helps at all. It is PGE's turn to be more responsible with their money. Please don't let them hurt us even more.

UE 435-131 3/2/2024 6:57:54 AM PORTLAND GENERAL ELECTRIC General Comment Web Josh HILLSBORO How is PGE able to raise rates 14% in 2023, raise rates another 17% in 2024, and now ask to raise rates even more in 2025 while also reporting a 24% increase in profit? If a company has government permission to be a monopoly, there needs to be strict laws for how they operate. They should not enjoy a $2.2 billion dollar profit for 2023 with zero competition and still operate for profit like they are competing in a legitimate market. I would gladly pay someone else for utilities, but there is nowhere else to go. It's absurd to even consider another price increase.

Thousands of PGE customers are still reeling from the rate increase and ice storm bills this January. PGE’s rates for Oregon households have already gone up by 30% from December 2022 to January 2024. People cannot afford these increases. Now is not the time to entertain PGE’s unreasonable request to raise bills. We are counting on you, the Commission, to put a stop to this and protect customers like me. PGE has requested $202 million (7.2%) under the guise of needing more money for battery storage projects. Only about $17 million is for battery storage. Instead, this case is a wishlist for management and includes many issues the Commission rejected just months ago. We cannot keep allowing utilities to continuously ask for the same bad policy over and over again. Please dismiss this case and tell PGE that enough is enough.

UE 435-132 3/2/2024 8:38:37 AM PORTLAND GENERAL ELECTRIC General Comment Web Mel Zillick PORTLAND I can’t believe that the state is continuing to consider rate hikes by PGE and PAC. 3 days ago PGE made what looked like a reach out to help low income homes, then the very next day they announced asking for a significant rate hike. So the low income reach was simply a marketing strategy. By continuing to approve these you are pushing more people to the financial edge. I work with low to moderate income communities and I also work with the utilities. This winter some residents have experienced $400-600 per month electricity increases. Someone that I know that has a completely natural gas home and completely insulated, is married with 2 kids and still experience’s $400 winter bills. Why are you putting these electric changes all on the laps of the people? Yes we need to change the grid, yet the federal and state governments should be addressing this and stop making all of us poorer through utilities greed. A lot of people are now starting to say that they are sticking to natural gas or switching back over. That is turning us in the opposite direction. Please stop these increases!

I was involved in helping my low-income brother avoid homelessness in 2022. He was not able to pay his PGE or water utility bill for months, until other low-income benefits were received. So as a PGE customer, former social worker, and as one concerned that we don't create new burdens for low-income households, I strongly encourage the Commission to reject PGE’s request to raise rates by 7.2% for Oregon households. Thousands of PGE customers are still reeling from the rate increase and ice storm bills this January. PGE’s rates for Oregon households have already gone up by 30% from December 2022 to January 2024.

As a PGE customer, I strongly encourage the Commission to reject PGE’s request to raise rates by 7.2% for Oregon households. This is absolutely ridiculous. How many folks do you want to put on the street before you stop this absurdity. Yes, this will put more people out on the street. We cannot keep allowing utilities to continuously ask for the same bad policy over and over again. I strongly believe that infrastructure changes need to be made as we move into a new world. PGE needed to start making those changes years ago. Did they? No!! Now they wantrare payers to foot the bill. No more rate increases on rate payers backs. Honestly, if I could consistently generate enough power from my solar panels I’d go off the grid. At this point in time I can’t. And this leads me to another issue on cuts on the credits we who have solar panels that PGE wants to make. My understanding is that pge is intimating that the credits aren’t worth the amount that pge is paying to us for them. If this were true it would have always been the case and they would never have given us the amount that they do. Those credits are worth every kilowatt that we earn. They are most likely worth more than waht we earn. My stand is that pge miscalculated and now they want rate payers to pay the costc. Pge needs to eat the cost and they also don’t get to reduce the price we get for our solar credits. And they need to manage much better than they do. Stop catering to pge. Please dismiss this case and tell PGE that enough is enough. Sincerely, Ms Paula Yocum 8924 SE Morrison St Portland, OR 97216-1729 paula.yocum@gmail.coml

UE 435-1345 3/30/2024 10:55:25 PM PORTLAND GENERAL ELECTRIC General Comment Web chuck f BEAVERTON increased pge rates could possibly lead to more illnesses as people will likely try to shut off or reduce heat due to high rates. more property damage from frozen pipes in the winter as renters will go some place warm and leave the heaters off at there apartments-property managers will raise rent further to pay for these repair costs. increased pge rates further radicalism towards or opposing the 1%-pge customers don't care about making pge shareholder investors happy when there customers can barely pay there bills. renters or homeowners will risk property damage or safety by bringing in portable fireplaces or kerosene heaters to create heat to get around high energy bills. there will be more apartment and home fires from increased energy bills-more taxing on emergency services. renters will likely shut panel breakers often to reduce bills which will likely blow out appliances causing property managers to raise rent rates to pay for damages-perhaps homeowners will do this as well and blow through costly low life appliances that are monopolized by a slow migration from china as well that could take several months before they are replaced.
UE 435-1347 4/1/2024 10:59:52 AM PORTLAND GENERAL ELECTRIC General Comment Web PORTLAND They said the rate hikes are for future investment and or that the public is paying for the storm that cause damage. Ok so after the money has been taking enough does the rate hike stop? And are we going to get compensation for using our money to invest on what pge is going to do? Doesnt seem fair to raise rates for consumers to pay indefinitely so pge can invest and make more profit from using consumers money to do so.

As a PGE customer, I strongly encourage the Commission to reject PGE’s request to raise rates by 7.2% for Oregon households. Thousands of PGE customers are still reeling from the rate increase and ice storm bills this January. PGE’s rates for Oregon households have already gone up by 30% from December 2022 to January 2024. People cannot afford these increases. Now is not the time to entertain PGE’s unreasonable request to raise bills. We are counting on you, the Commission, to put a stop to this and protect customers like me. PGE has requested $202 million (7.2%) under the guise of needing more money for battery storage projects. Only about $17 million is for battery storage. Instead, this case is a wishlist for management and includes many issues the Commission rejected just months ago. We cannot keep allowing utilities to continuously ask for the same bad policy over and over again. Please dismiss this case and tell PGE that enough is enough.

One example of cost-saving measures that could be implemented: With all the radical tree trimming PGE has undertaken, where is the coordination with Cityof Portland to identify and plant trees under the wires that provide shade and oxygen but will not require on-going trimming of all the suckers that grow up each time the previous trimming stressed the tree. Fuel to enter each neighborhood, and to run the chipper, could be greatly reduced by making permanent more logical rules about how to prevent the necessity of these services. Please, let's make part decisions to protect the citizens of our community including your workers, and PGE customers instead of asking more of the customers and those who must put their lives in danger during weather events. Please. Please dismiss this case and tell PGE that enough is enough. Sincerely, Ms. M. Andre 2940 SE Brooklyn St Portland, OR 97202-2027 andme@teleport.com

As a PGE customer, I strongly encourage the Commission to reject PGE’s request to raise rates by 7.2% for Oregon households. Thousands of PGE customers are still reeling from the rate increase and ice storm bills this January. PGE’s rates for Oregon households have already gone up by 30% from December 2022 to January 2024. People cannot afford these increases. Now is not the time to entertain PGE’s unreasonable request to raise bills. We are counting on you, the Commission, to put a stop to this and protect customers like me. PGE has requested $202 million (7.2%) under the guise of needing more money for battery storage projects. Only about $17 million is for battery storage. Instead, this case is a wishlist for management and includes many issues the Commission rejected just months ago. We cannot keep allowing utilities to continuously ask for the same bad policy over and over again. Please dismiss this case and tell PGE that enough is enough.

UE 435-141 3/2/2024 11:53:19 AM PORTLAND GENERAL ELECTRIC General Comment Web Tom Odgers PORTLAND Dear Oregon Public Utility Commission, I am writing to express my profound concern and dissatisfaction regarding the recent announcement of rate increases by Portland General Electric (PGE). As a resident of Portland, living at 3324 SW Fairmount Blvd, Portland, I have been a loyal customer of PGE, relying on their services for my daily needs. It has come to my attention that PGE plans to increase their pricing rates. This decision is particularly disheartening because it seems to disregard the current economic challenges faced by many Oregonians, myself included. The lack of significant infrastructure improvements or movements to justify such an increase adds to my frustration. Moreover, despite these proposed rate hikes, I, along with other residents, continue to experience frequent power outages, which further questions the rationale behind increasing the financial burden on consumers. The absence of tangible enhancements in service delivery and infrastructure, coupled with the continuous inconvenience of power disruptions, raises concerns about the justification for this rate adjustment. It is crucial for utility providers like PGE to ensure that any increase in rates is matched with proportional improvements in service quality, reliability, and customer satisfaction. Therefore, I urge the Oregon Public Utility Commission to thoroughly review PGE's proposal for rate increases. It is essential to ensure that any adjustments are reasonable, justified by concrete improvements, and considerate of the economic impact on Oregon residents. I look forward to your response and hope for a favorable review of this matter. Please consider the implications of these rate increases on consumers like myself, who depend on PGE for essential services but are left questioning the value and reliability of these services in light of recent developments. Thank you for your attention to this matter and for advocating on behalf of Oregon's utility consumers.

As a PGE customer, I urge the Commission to dismiss PGE's proposal for a 7.2% rate hike for Oregon households. Many customers are still grappling with the aftermath of January's rate increase and ice storm expenses. PGE's rates for Oregon households have surged by 30% since December 2022. These increases are unsustainable for people already facing financial strain. It's not the time to consider PGE's unjustifiable request for higher bills. We rely on the Commission to intervene and safeguard customers like myself. PGE's request, supposedly for battery storage projects, amounts to $202 million (7.2%), with only a fraction allocated to actual storage. Instead, it appears to be a wish list for management, revisiting issues previously rejected by the Commission. We cannot allow utilities to persistently push for detrimental policies.

I am writing to express my deep concern and dissatisfaction regarding the recently proposed price increases for electricity services in Oregon. It is with a heavy heart that I address this issue, as it marks the second substantial hike in rates within approximately eight months. As a customer of Pacific Power, I have always understood the need for reasonable adjustments to account for operating costs and infrastructure maintenance. However, the proposed increase this time is utterly outrageous and places an undue burden on the residents of our community. Not only are we facing economic uncertainties, but such a sharp increase in utility costs threatens the financial stability of many families and businesses in Oregon. The timing of this hike seems particularly insensitive given the current state of affairs, where every dollar counts for the well-being of our households. It is essential to recognize that these continual rises in rates are not just numbers on a bill; they have real and tangible effects on the lives of your customers. Many of us are forced to make difficult choices between paying increasingly higher bills and meeting other basic necessities, such as food and healthcare. Moreover, this pattern of frequent price hikes erodes the trust that customers have placed in Pacific Power. We rely on their services to be fair, reliable, and considerate of the communities you serve. Yet, these repeated increases without substantial justification undermine this trust and leave us questioning the integrity of the company's practices. I urge you to object to this proposed price increase and to get Pacific Power to engage in transparent communication with their customers about the factors driving these decisions. We deserve a clear explanation of why such a drastic measure is necessary and what alternatives have been explored to mitigate its impact on consumers. In conclusion, I hope that Pacific Power will prioritize the well-being of its customers and the communities it serves over short-term financial gains. Their customers are not merely account numbers but individuals and families striving to make ends meet in an increasingly challenging economic environment. Thank you for taking the time to consider my concerns. I eagerly await your response and hope for a resolution that is fair and equitable for all parties involved. Sincerely, Violeta Iguchi - Medford resident ________________________________

As a PGE customer, I strongly encourage the Commission to reject PGE’s request to raise rates by 7.2% for Oregon households. Thousands of PGE customers are still reeling from the rate increase and ice storm bills this January. PGE’s rates for Oregon households have already gone up by 30% from December 2022 to January 2024. People cannot afford these increases. Now is not the time to entertain PGE’s unreasonable request to raise bills. We are counting on you, the Commission, to put a stop to this and protect customers like me. PGE has requested $202 million (7.2%) under the guise of needing more money for battery storage projects. Only about $17 million is for battery storage. Instead, this case is a wishlist for management and includes many issues the Commission rejected just months ago. We cannot keep allowing utilities to continuously ask for the same bad policy over and over again. Please dismiss this case and tell PGE that enough is enough.

UE 435-143 3/5/2024 9:01:27 AM PORTLAND GENERAL ELECTRIC General Comment Web Lynn Blessing WEST LINN I am frustrated with rates as we are seniors on fixed income. The cost for power and constant rate increases are insanity! Our bill practically doubled and was over $500 when normally around $300 even though we are using a wood stove and shutting off lights around the house. How anyone can sustain this? PGE is increasing rates every January and I am not sure how seniors are going to handle it. Those living in Portland pay a much higher rates than WA or CA even though we are sitting on hydro power. I feel like Oregonians are being punished. Please stop raising rates every January!

UE 435-144 3/5/2024 9:18:17 AM PORTLAND GENERAL ELECTRIC General Comment Web Anthony Riddick PORTLAND Hello, I'm fairly new to Oregon ( 4 years to be exact) and this new proposed 7.4% increase on rates is rather ridiculous. Considering rates with PGE just went up 17% in January which disproportionately affected alot of its customers was hard enough. Is it not OPUC job to protect customers from rates like this? Why is this commission's job not being done? If those on the commission are unable to do their jobs they should be replaced with people who actually can instead of holding on to incompetent and worthless individuals. This is just another reason to leave this state for a place more affordable. GET IT RIGHT OR GET OUT!

UE 435-1448 4/2/2024 1:41:47 PM PORTLAND GENERAL ELECTRIC General Comment Web Kevin Gee GRAND RONDE If PGE intends to increase their rates then they first should be required to either trim the trees out of their lines OR bury the lines so that we don't have outages everytime the wind blows a measly 10 mph. We are constantly without power and lots of times it is not just for 1 day but for much longer than necessary. It was only last year or the year before we were without power for 10 days in my area. This is not acceptable and we cannot even access emergency services when this occurs. The response times for things like this are severely lacking. It is PGEs responsibility to take care of their lines if they are to use them for doing business and charging people. It is not up to residents to foot the bill for maintaining THEIR equipment. It is quite frankly the cost of doing business and as a business owner myself I have several costs of conducting business myself such as credit card processing fees and other things. PGE is not exempt from paying their OWN cost of business expenses just the same as ANY other business entity on this planet. They are not above the laws or above paying for their own expenses. So, until they can do something about continued outages, slow response times to outages and paying for their own equipment maintenance and expenses? NO to their requested increases. Trim the trees OR bury the lines. It's time to spend the money to do that and then you won't have all of the expenses for repairs. Use your brain and upkeep your equipment and take care of YOUR business and stop expecting citizens to do it and take care of your business for you. Thanks.

Thousands of PGE customers are still reeling from the rate increase and ice storm bills this January. PGE’s rates for Oregon households have already gone up by 30% from December 2022 to January 2024. People cannot afford these increases. Now is not the time to entertain PGE’s unreasonable request to raise bills. We are counting on you, the Commission, to put a stop to this and protect customers like me. PGE has requested $202 million (7.2%) under the guise of needing more money for battery storage projects. Only about $17 million is for battery storage. Instead, this case is a wishlist for management and includes many issues the Commission rejected just months ago. We cannot keep allowing utilities to continuously ask for the same bad policy over and over again. Please dismiss this case and tell PGE that enough is enough. Sincerely, Ms. Corina Ferguson 4521 SE 104th Ave Portland, OR 97266-3501 Corinaleeann10@live.com
UE 435-145 3/2/2024 12:11:32 PM PORTLAND GENERAL ELECTRIC General Comment Web Daniel Miller PORTLAND Regarding HB 2021: Hopefully by now it has been heard by someone of the PUC that the PGE rate hikes have been severely impacting Oregonians. This coupled with sensational headlines of heads of PGE receiving year-over-year bonus increases in the millions, totally unustified in the wake of extreme rate hikes. The gall of those so greedy and of those who rubber-stamp such moves is appalling. But here we are, paying so much more with even greater hikes being threatened. Looking at the bill, there's one portion I want to bring attention to, a portion which seems to run against these rate hikes: "decarbonize their retail electricity sales by 2040 with consideration for benefits to local communities." Understanding what "consideration" means here, clearly that's to refer to the near-future benefits of being carbon-free; what is not being understood or interpreted is "consideration for the benefit of local communities" NOW. To approve a private monopoly outrages pay increase while the impose outrages fee hikes is NOT "consideration for benefits of local communities," it's TOTAL DISREGARD of the benefit of local communities. To sign off on rate hikes and CEO payouts is an abdication of any duty the PUC may have been heated in Relieve the tax payers and utility-paying members of communities you claim to represent. Make the greedy heads of PGE return their bonuses and investbthosebfunds in infrastructure. Stop increasing rates while increasing payouts. This comment will hopefully find at least one sympathetic ear, though probably unlikely considering the callous actions of the PUC. No accountability and everyone lining their pockets.

As a PGE customer, my rates went up 21.9% in January, NOT 18% because PGE eliminated the lower cost first 1000 kWh rate. I strongly encourage the Commission to reject PGE’s request to raise rates by 7.2% for Oregon households. Thousands of PGE customers are still reeling from the rate increase and ice storm bills this January. PGE’s rates for Oregon households have already gone up by 30% from December 2022 to January 2024. Battery storage costs are still at outrageous cost levels and as such should not be on the table. PGE has requested $202 million (7.2%) under the guise of needing more money for battery storage projects. Only about $17 million is for battery storage. Instead, this case is a wishlist for management and includes many issues the Commission rejected just months ago. We cannot keep allowing utilities to continuously ask for the same bad policy over and over again. We need the state legislature to be more realistic too, since seem to be in collusion with PGE to do lots of uneconomical changes. Also outrageous executive pay in public utilities should not have excess compensation paid for by us users! The top PGE person is compensated by about $6M/year. That is outrageous!

As a PGE customer, I strongly encourage the Commission to reject PGE’s request to raise rates by 7.2% for Oregon households. Thousands of PGE customers are still reeling from the rate increase and ice storm bills this January. PGE’s rates for Oregon households have already gone up by 30% from December 2022 to January 2024. People cannot afford these increases. Now is not the time to entertain PGE’s unreasonable request to raise bills. We are counting on you, the Commission, to put a stop to this and protect customers like me. PGE has requested $202 million (7.2%) under the guise of needing more money for battery storage projects. Only about $17 million is for battery storage. Instead, this case is a wishlist for management and includes many issues the Commission rejected just months ago. We cannot keep allowing utilities to continuously ask for the same bad policy over and over again. Please dismiss this case and tell PGE that enough is enough.

UE 435-149 3/2/2024 12:52:20 PM PORTLAND GENERAL ELECTRIC General Comment Web Melinda Hasting Baker PORTLAND I am writing to express opposition to the aggressive rate increases by Portland General Electric. I am a Portland resident (address redacted) and a PGE customer. We have no choice in providers, or vote in rate increases. PGE's commitment to improve existing infrastructure and rectify regular outages is profoundly underwhelming. If PGE's claim that the legislature, via HB 2021, has literally forced them to raise rates more than 40% since 2020, then please publicly let us all know so we can direct outrage in that direction, too. I hope the Commission can scrutinize PGE's compensation structure for executives and shareholders, particularly during a time when everyday people are trying to bounce back economically from the pandemic. Thanks for your service to the community, and I hope you will think of the consumers as you deliberate PGE's proposal.
UE 435-1490 4/3/2024 12:33:25 AM 3/20/2024 9:30:28 PM General Comment Email fburgesspdx@everyactioncustom.com Dear Public Comments Oregon Public Utility Commission, I am writing to comment on the Portland General Electric rate case (UE 435). I am a PGE customer in Southeast Portland, and I am writing to urge the Commission to reject PGE’s request to raise rates by 7.2% for Oregon households. PGE already took in a tremendous amount of money from their customers during the ice storm, and it was evident from the response to the ice storm power outages that PGE is not using that money for more robust emergency infrastructure or adequate staffing. They have had plenty of time and resources to implement such changes, as PGE’s rates for Oregon households have already gone up by 30% from December 2022 to January 2024. People cannot afford these increases. Now is not the time to entertain PGE’s unreasonable request to raise bills. We are counting on you, the Commission, to put a stop to this and protect customers like me. PGE has requested $202 million (7.2%) under the guise of needing more money for battery storage projects, but only about $17 million of that money is allocated for battery storage. The rest of the money is going toward issues the Commission rejected just months ago, and toward padding the pockets of administrators. This rate hike will disproportionately impact Black, Indigenous, disabled, low income and housing insecure Oregonians. We cannot let our most vulnerable community members keep falling victim to bad utilities policy.

UE 435-1491 4/3/2024 12:33:27 AM 3/20/2024 9:23:38 PM General Comment Email iglesiasd860@everyactioncustom.com Dear Public Comments Oregon Public Utility Commission, I am writing to comment on the Portland General Electric rate case (UE 435). As a PGE customer, I strongly encourage the Commission to reject PGE’s request to raise rates by 7.2% for Oregon households. Thousands of PGE customers are still reeling from the rate increase and ice storm bills this January. PGE’s rates for Oregon households have already gone up by 30% from December 2022 to January 2024. People cannot afford these increases. Now is not the time to entertain PGE’s unreasonable request to raise bills. We are counting on you, the Commission, to put a stop to this and protect customers like me. PGE has requested $202 million (7.2%) under the guise of needing more money for battery storage projects. Only about $17 million is for battery storage. Instead, this case is a wishlist for management and includes many issues the Commission rejected just months ago. We cannot keep allowing utilities to continuously ask for the same bad policy over and over again. Please dismiss this case and tell PGE that enough is enough. Sincerely, Miss Diana Iglesias 4017 SE Yamhill St Portland, OR 97214-4444 iglesiasd860@gmail.com

UE 435-15 2/29/2024 6:17:59 PM PORTLAND GENERAL ELECTRIC Oppose Docket Web Kris Angerano NEWBERG Another rate increase for sub par service is not acceptable. Poll the general portland population with electric heat pumps how they feel about another 9% increase on top of the "18%" from last year. The available rebates for low income families is also not available to a retired couple with social security as only income. Yes that is correct, thats like 45k last year, with the rebates at 43k income. As a single family home, my bill will have gone from $150 a month to $210 per month after these increases within 2 years. This is a NO.
UE 435-150 3/2/2024 12:54:07 PM PORTLAND GENERAL ELECTRIC General Comment Web Terry Maloney PORTLAND Don't you dare let PGE raise rates again! They are making record profits and asking for another raise. No rate increase for 2025. Every penny of their increase in profit is taken directly from our pockets. You are either corrupt or inept at doing your job. 41% increase in 4 years? Who is lining your pockets?
