Energy in Oregon

In Oregon, our electricity comes from a variety of resources, from coal and petroleum to nuclear energy.
We also use renewable resources – including water, wind, and the sun – to generate electricity. The power in your home could be coming from any (or all!) of these resources.

About the Electricity Resource Mix

The Oregon Department of Energy collects electricity resource data from our state’s utility providers. The information helps us – and Oregonians across the state – track power sources and better understand the environmental effects of the electricity we use.

Our analysis takes into account all electricity that serves Oregon, including electricity that is generated outside the state and delivered to Oregon customers.
