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
