PGE and PacifiCorp face big headwinds on resource plans

PacifiCorp and Portland General Electric pitched new resource plans to regulators last week that include major investments in renewable energy.

PacifiCorp’s $3.5 billion proposal entails building 1,100 megawatts of new wind farms in Wyoming, upgrading another 1,000 megawatts of existing windmills there to provide more power, and building a new transmission line to ease bottlenecks on the grid and bring all that green energy to market.
