We provide our 14 member-owner cooperative utilities with economic and strategic value so they can offer customers the lowest cost power possible today and in the future. Our goal is to continue to increase the competitiveness of our electric cooperative member-owners.
PNGC Power is backed by over $960 million in assets of its member-owners, which enables us to nimbly respond to the shift in the way that Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) is now providing wholesale power. PNGC is BPA’s third largest customer and our new contract fully recognizes PNGC as a Joint Operating Entity (JOE).
Our JOE status allows members to retain the benefits and cost-saving of aggregation via PNGC’s ability to jointly purchase power at wholesale from BPA. By coming together as PNGC Power, co-op utilities have more options than any one of them could have alone.
PNGC Power is governed by a board of directors comprised of professional utility managers from each of our member systems. Each has years of experience and a broad range of expertise in the power industry. Many board members are active leaders in statewide, regional and national industry organizations and associations. Plus, PNGC gains political strength because members are active and well connected in a wide range of arenas in the Northwest.
The relationship between the talented working board and experienced senior management at PNGC Power coupled with each co-op's local, personal service is a powerful combination. It is the driving force behind the strength and success of the organization.
