Oregon Utility Partners with Cities to achieve Resiliency with Microgrids

Portland General Electric would like to see microgrids “strategically placed” throughout its service territory, as it helps cities achieve resiliency.

Beaverton is the second Oregon city that will embrace microgrids for resiliency, working with utility Portland General Electric (PGE), which says it plans additional partnerships with cities.

PGE’s microgrid projects are designed in part to provide resiliency if and when an earthquake hits the Oregon coast. Scientists have predicted that an earthquake as big as 8.0-9.0 could strike the region soon.
