Portland General Electric, Oregon's largest utility, is a recognized leader in our industry and an active community partner.

PGE is working to secure a sustainable, affordable energy future for Oregon. Our renewable power program ranks first in the nation. Thanks to our award-winning solar power initiatives we’re among the nation's 10 top utilities for solar integration. To help customers be more sustainable, we're developing a network of charging stations for plug-in hybrid electric and all-electric vehicles. The move responds to customers’ concerns about climate change and anticipates the plans of car manufacturers to roll out a new generation of plug-in hybrids.

We've achieved our success by investing in the very best people and empowering them to find new and better ways to meet our customers' needs.

If you're looking for a creative, fast-changing, team-oriented work environment, PGE is the place for you. We currently employ about 100 engineers who work on diverse projects ranging from planning and designing substations, wind farms and hydropower projects to expanding our transmission and distribution network.

PGE is also an equal opportunity employer that values diversity and inclusion in the workplace. Learn more about our company, our benefits, meet some of the people behind our success and discover what makes PGE such a great place to work.
