Quick Facts

  • In 2020, hydroelectric power accounted for 50% of Oregon's electricity generation, and all renewable sources combined produced 68% of total utility-scale generation.
  • In 2020, wind energy produced 14% of Oregon's utility-scale electricity net generation with almost 3,800 megawatts of installed generating capacity. 
  • Oregon is a partner in the West Coast Electric Highway along with California, Washington, and British Columbia, Canada. As of February 2022, there were about 900 public electric vehicle charging stations with a total of more than 2,100 charging ports in service across Oregon.
