Item 8.01    Other Events.

On February 29, 2024, Portland General Electric Company (“PGE” or the “Company”) filed with the Public Utility Commission of Oregon (OPUC) a general rate case based on a 2025 test year (2025 GRC). The Company's filing requests a $225 million increase in the annual revenue requirement related primarily to recovery of costs associated with non-emitting battery projects, an increase in base business costs for upgrades to PGE's transmission and distribution system, and investments in strengthening and safeguarding the grid to meet growing customer demand and bolster reliability. PGE continues to build a modern grid designed to withstand extreme weather and allow energy to flow from more resources to improve reliability, resiliency, and capability to deliver safe, reliable, clean electricity to customers. The 2025 GRC, as requested, would result in an approximate 7.4% overall increase relative to currently approved prices. The total increase in annual revenue requirement includes $37 million as a result of higher net variable power costs expected in 2025, as reflected in the Annual Power Cost Update Tariff also filed, separately, with the OPUC February 29, 2024 (OPUC Docket UE 436).

The net increase in annual revenue requirement is based upon:
• a capital structure of 50% debt and 50% equity;
• a return on equity of 9.75%;
• a cost of capital of 7.189%; and
• a rate base of $7.5 billion.

Other key items in the filing include requests for a Renewable Automatic Adjustment Clause mechanism for standalone energy storage and an investment recovery mechanism.

Regulatory review of the 2025 GRC will continue throughout 2024, with a final order targeted to be issued by the OPUC by the end of the year. New customer prices are expected to become effective January 1, 2025.

The 2025 GRC filing (OPUC Docket UE 435), including copies of direct testimony and exhibits, is expected to be made available on the OPUC website at www.oregon.gov/puc.
