PGE Receives Department of Energy Grant for Smart Grid Test Bed

Portland, Ore. - PGE has been selected to receive a U.S. Department of Energy grant of $6.65M that will allow us to bring more resources into our North Portland Smart Grid Test Bed. The project will include retrofitting approximately 580 buildings in the Overlook/Arbor Lodge area, a portion of which includes historically underserved communities, while developing 1.4 MW of "flexible load" made up of rooftop solar, electric vehicle charging, smart devices like thermostats and water heaters, and more.
