Portland General Electric announces 2018 financial results and
initiates 2019 earnings guidance

Full-year 2018 financial results of $2.37 per diluted share near the top of guidance range
Initiating 2019 earnings guidance of $2.35 to $2.50 per diluted share
Collaborating with NextEra Energy Resources to construct nation’s first major co-location of renewables and storage; own 100 megawatts of renewable generation

PORTLAND, Ore. - Portland General Electric Company (NYSE: POR) today reported net income of $212 million, or $2.37 per diluted share, for the year ended Dec. 31, 2018. This compares with a net income of $187 million, or $2.10 per diluted share, for the year ended Dec. 31, 2017. Net income was $49 million, or $0.55 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2018. This compares with $42 million, or $0.48 cents per diluted share, for the comparable period of 2017.

"We are pleased with our strong financial results for 2018 and excited to announce the bid chosen from the Renewable RFP process,” said Maria Pope, PGE president and CEO. “The first of its scale in North America, our collaboration with NextEra Energy Resources on the Wheatridge Renewable Energy Facility leverages both companies’ strengths to combine wind and solar generation with energy storage at scale. We look forward to bringing the wind farm online in 2020, giving customers the benefit of the 100 percent federal production tax credit.”

2018 earnings compared to 2017 earnings

Factors leading to the $0.27 per diluted share increase include the following:
A decrease of $0.31 per diluted share due to milder weather primarily in the first and fourth quarters of 2018 that contributed to lower energy demand than in the first and fourth quarters of 2017
An increase of $0.12 per diluted share resulting from lower purchased power and fuel costs and an increase in wholesale sales
An increase of $0.09 per diluted share attributable to lower storm restoration costs
An increase of $0.08 per diluted share attributable to lower plant maintenance expenses
An increase of $0.11 per diluted share due to the Carty cash settlement
An increase of $0.19 per diluted share due to a charge in 2017 related to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act

An increase of $0.01 per diluted share from the net impact of regulatory items including the outcomes of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act docket (UM 1920) and Capital Deferral docket (UM 1909)
A decrease of $0.02 per diluted share due to other miscellaneous items
 
Company Updates

Wheatridge Renewable Energy Facility

After months of regulatory and competitive bidding process, PGE completed its review of the final shortlist of projects acknowledged by the Public Utility Commission of Oregon (OPUC) in Dec. 2018. PGE announced the results of this competitive bidding process on Feb. 7, 2019.

PGE is collaborating with NextEra Energy Resources to construct the Wheatridge Renewable Energy Facility. Located in Eastern Oregon, the facility will combine 300 megawatts of wind generation with 50 megawatts of solar generation and 30 megawatts of battery storage. It will be the nation’s first major energy facility to co-locate and integrate these technologies at scale. PGE will own 100 megawatts of the wind project and will purchase the balance of the project’s output under 30-year power purchase agreements. NextEra Energy Resources’ subsidiary will operate the facility.

The wind component will be operational by Dec. 2020 and will qualify for the 100 percent federal production tax credit. Construction of the solar and battery components is planned for 2021. PGE expects to invest approximately $160 million to own its portion of the project.

General Rate Case

On Jan. 1, 2019, new customer prices went into effect pursuant to the OPUC Order which authorized a $9 million price increase. This includes return on equity of 9.5 percent; capital structure of 50 percent debt and 50 percent equity; cost of capital at 7.3 percent, and rate base of $4.75 billion. On Dec. 14, 2018, the OPUC adopted all stipulations in the case and resolved the remaining contested issues.

Tax Cuts and Jobs Act

On Dec. 22, 2017, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was enacted and signed into law with provisions going into effect on Jan. 1, 2018. Pursuant to an OPUC Order issued on Dec. 4, 2018, PGE began refunding $45 million to customers over a two-year period starting on Jan. 1, 2019.

Deferred Capital Project Costs

On Oct. 29, 2018, the OPUC issued an Order concluding that the Commission lacked legal authority to allow deferrals of costs related to capital investments. PGE had estimated a $12 million benefit associated with the deferral of customer information system costs in 2018 and has recorded a reserve for this amount. On Dec. 24, 2018, PGE filed for reconsideration of the Order. The OPUC has until Feb. 22, 2019 to respond to the request.

Fourth Quarter and Full-Year 2018 earnings call and webcast - Feb. 15, 2019

PGE will host a conference call with financial analysts and investors on Friday, Feb. 15, 2019, at 11 a.m. ET. The conference call will be web cast live on the PGE website at PortlandGeneral.com. A replay of the call will be available beginning at 2 p.m. ET on Friday, Feb. 15, 2019 through Friday, Feb. 22, 2019.
