What is the Public Generating Pool?

The Public Generating Pool (PGP) was formed in 1975 as an unincorporated association operating as a joint venture. The PGP is composed of eleven consumer-owned electric utilities, ten in Washington and one in Oregon, that work together on issues of common interest. All eleven members own or purchase non-federal generating resources: 6,071 MW of renewable hydro generation, 537 MW of renewable wind generation, 18 MW of renewable landfill gas generation, 29 MW of other renewable generation, 248 MW of gas generation and 90 MW of other generation. Eight PGP members also purchase 34 percent of the requirements power sold by the Bonneville Power Administration.

The PGP members have a large presence in the Pacific Northwest. In 2010, PGP utilities served 938,357 customers in Washington and Oregon and had retail sales totaling 30,277,204 MWh or 3,456 MWa. Among publicly-owned utilities, the PGP member utilities are among the largest in the nation. The membership has expertise in all aspects of integrated electric utility operations and they are active participants in west coast wholesale power markets. Four members also operate Balance Authority Areas. As a group, the PGP members bring a unique perspective and level of understanding to regional and national energy issues.
