Benefits of Aggregation

PNGC Power operates as a Joint Operating Entity (JOE), aggregating the members’ loads and resources and purchasing net requirements from BPA under consolidated contractual agreements. This allows us to save on costs, as we can efficiently leverage opportunities and more accurately manage and forecast, for one combined load, rather than 14 individual loads. Aggregation allows utilities, regardless of size, to engage with the expertise necessary for effective power supply management. Our new Load Following contract with BPA allows us to take full advantage of our JOE status.

By combining members’ purchases we create a total system load shape that matches up well with the generation output of the Federal Base System. This flexibility and our access to power markets help us manage and mitigate power price and supply risk for members.
