Item 2.03 Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

On December 19, 2008, Portland General Electric Company (PGE) and certain institutional buyers (Buyers) in the private placement market entered into an agreement under which PGE will sell, and the Buyers will purchase, an aggregate of $130 million of PGE's First Mortgage Bonds (Bonds). The Bonds are expected to be issued in two series to the Buyers on or about January 15, 2009 (Original Issue Date). The agreement calls for one series of the Bonds, in the amount of $67 million, to bear interest from the Original Issue Date at an annual rate of 6.80% and mature on January 15, 2016. The other series, in the amount of $63 million, will bear interest from the Original Issue Date at an annual rate of 6.50% and will mature on January 15, 2014.

The Bonds will be issued pursuant to a Bond Purchase Agreement between PGE and the Buyers and under PGE's Indenture of Mortgage and Deed of Trust, dated July 1, 1945, as supplemented, between PGE and HSBC Bank USA, National Association (as successor to The Marine Midland Trust Company of New York) in its capacity as trustee, including the Sixty-first Supplemental Indenture dated the Original Issue Date. The Bonds will be redeemable at the option of PGE at the designated "make-whole" redemption price as described in the Sixty-first Supplemental Indenture.

The Bonds represent a portion of approximately $300 million in new long-term debt that PGE anticipates issuing by the end of 2009.
