The Oregon Public Utility Commission (PUC) today authorized an overall $20.9 million, or 1.6 percent decrease in PacifiCorp’s revenue requirement, delaying the recovery of certain costs until after further investigation next year. The decrease in customer rates, effective January 1, 2021, is a result of the general rate case review, which was the company’s first since 2012. Earlier this fall, the PUC issued a separate decision to reduce PacifiCorp’s net variable power costs charged to customers by $49.8 million or 3.8 percent. The specific rate impact to customers resulting from these decisions will be finalized later this month.
Pacific Power is a business unit of PacifiCorps.
