Profile Overview

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.
  • Oregon receives more than 90% of the refined petroleum products it uses from the Puget Sound refineries in Washington. Those petroleum products, including transportation fuels, arrive by way of the Olympic Pipeline and by barge at Portland-area terminals.
  • Oregon has the only natural gas field in the Pacific Northwest—the Mist field of northwestern Oregon, discovered in 1979—but the state does not have significant natural gas reserves or production.
