During the next 20 years, demand for electricity to serve PGE customers is expected to increase about 20 percent.
PGE’s new Carty Generating Station is helping PGE serve existing customer demand, meet additional growth and maintain a reliable supply of power.
Additional capacity near Boardman
The new 440-megawatt, natural gas-fired Carty Generating Station is next to our Boardman Plant.
The Carty plant uses a highly-efficient G-class turbine manufactured by Mitsubishi and is capable of producing enough low-cost electricity to serve about 300,000 residential customers.
PGE owns and operates the facility, which came online in July 2016. The project created hundreds of jobs at peak construction and employs about 20 full-time workers during normal operation.
