Portland General Electric announces third quarter 2018 results

Stipulations reached on revenue requirement in 2019 General Rate Case
Recognized $10 million proceeds from Carty Generating Station settlement
RFP shortlist submitted to the OPUC to procure 100 MWa of qualifying renewable resources

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Portland General Electric Company (NYSE: POR) today reported net income of $53 million, or 59 cents per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2018. This compares with net income of $40 million, or 44 cents per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2017.

“With the Carty settlement behind us, we can now focus our full attention on the future,” said Maria Pope, PGE president and CEO. “In addition to achieving solid operational and financial results this quarter, we have made progress toward adding new renewables and advancing several smart grid projects.”

The increase in third quarter earnings was driven by the Carty Generating Station cash settlement. Additionally, increased wholesale revenues and reductions in other expenses were partially offset by less favorable weather conditions.
Company update

Carty Generating Station

In July 2018, PGE finalized the settlement with parties related to the Carty Generating Station. As part of the settlement, PGE was paid $130 million. Of this, $120 million offset the investment on our balance sheet and the remaining $10 million, or 7 cents per share, was booked to administration and general income to reflect the partial recovery of previous expenses. For the third and fourth quarters of 2018, PGE will realize the benefit of avoided litigation and carrying costs.

2019 General Rate Case

As of September 2018, PGE has reached agreement on all revenue requirement issues in the 2019 General Rate Case. The agreements support rate base of $4.75 billion, a 9.5 percent return on equity, a 7.3 percent cost of capital and a 50 percent debt and 50 percent equity capital structure. Remaining unresolved issues involve full volumetric decoupling that would include the effects of weather, the storm restoration balancing account and application of weather trends in the load forecasting models. Review by the Public Utility Commission of Oregon (OPUC) will

continue until the final order is issued, which is expected by the end of the year. New customer prices will go into effect January 1, 2019.

Renewable Request for Proposal (RFP)

In October 2018, PGE completed the review process of the Renewable Request for Proposal with oversight from an independent evaluator selected by the OPUC. PGE and a developer jointly submitted a project that includes 36 MWa of company-owned wind resources that would qualify for the federal production tax credit, and a power purchase agreement representing up to 83 MWa. The project was selected along with two other projects as part of the Final Shortlist submitted to the OPUC. The Shortlist included various combinations of wind, solar and battery storage as well as PPA and partial ownership options. PGE requested that the OPUC acknowledge the Final Shortlist by early December 2018 to enable the company to execute definitive agreements with the selected parties and allow sufficient time to capture expiring federal production tax credits for the benefit of customers. PGE expects to finalize negotiations by the end of 2018.
