PGE Donates Additional $50,000 to Oregon HEAT

by Associated Press, October 14, 2007

TUALATIN, Ore. - The state's largest nonprofit organization providing energy assistance to low-income Oregonians can now provide additional help this winter thanks to an additional $50,000 contribution from Portland General Electric.

The additional donation to Oregon HEAT brings PGE's total combined support to about $379,000 for the organization's fiscal year.

The extra $50,000 for Oregon HEAT is earmarked to help low-income Oregonians after the suspension of the Bonneville Power Administration's residential exchange credit.

The credit suspension increased the typical residential customer's monthly bill by nearly $11.

Oregon HEAT partners with 34 local community service agencies to distribute assistance to families in crisis, targeting Oregon's most vulnerable citizens - the elderly, disabled and families with young children.
