Portland General Electric Co. (PGE), a Portland, Ore.-headquartered utility, has filed with the Oregon Public Utility Commission an integrated resource plan that targets additional renewable resources, energy efficiency, demand-side resources and power purchase agreements of varying terms.

The plan also envisions the purchase of additional capacity to assure reliability under peak-demand situations and help with the integration of variable wind generation, according to the utility.

Specifically, PGE plans to continue development of the Biglow Canyon wind project in Sherman County, Oregon, by adding a total maximum generating capacity of 400 MW to 500 MW. The first phase of the project is currently under construction.

PGE intends to acquire an additional 218 average MW of renewable power in order to meet Oregon's new renewable energy standard, which requires the utility to derive 15% of power from renewables by 2015.
