Douglas Electric Cooperative provides rates that are among the lowest in the region. This is possible because of our ability to purchase low cost hydro power from the Bonneville Power Administration via our participation in PNGC Power, an Oregon-based electric generation and transmission (G & T) cooperative owned by 15 Northwest electric distribution cooperative utilities with service territory in seven western states (Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Utah, Nevada and Wyoming). In addition, we are a not-for-profit cooperative. We have a strong internal focus on controlling costs and operating efficiently to control costs for our members. The section below details each of the rate schedules that we use at DEC.
