PNGC Power – UEC is one of the 15 utilities with consumers in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Utah, Nevada and Wyoming that make up PNGC Power. Based in Portland, PNGC Power is a vital and influential participant in the electric utility industry. We were the first electric cooperative to obtain a power marketing license in 1996, which opened the door for us to purchase wholesale power and resell it to our members, other utilities and marketers. PNGC allows small cooperatives to realize economies of scale and take advantage of the same services and technical capabilities available to a large electric utility.
