Item 8.01    Other Events.
On December 17, 2010, the Public Utility Commission of Oregon (OPUC) issued a final order (Order) in a general rate case proceeding, which addressed a requested price increase for Portland General Electric Company (PGE, or the Company). In the Order, the OPUC approved the stipulations previously agreed upon, as described in the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2010, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 28, 2010.
General Prices - The OPUC approved an increase in the Company's annual revenues of $65 million, which includes a reduction in net variable power costs (NVPC) of $35 million, representing an approximate 3.9% overall increase in customer prices, effective January 1, 2011. The increase primarily reflects the costs of infrastructure investments, including the recently completed Biglow Canyon Wind Farm and improvements to hydroelectric facilities on the Clackamas River. The Order results in an average rate base of approximately $3.15 billion for 2011.
Cost of Capital - The OPUC authorized a capital structure of 50% debt and 50% equity with a return on equity of 10.0%, providing an overall cost of capital of 8.033%
Power Cost Adjustment Mechanism (PCAM) - The deadband range for the PCAM, as approved in the OPUC Order, was set at a fixed range of $15 million below, to $30 million above, baseline NVPC.
Decoupling - The decoupling mechanism was extended through December 31, 2013.
Other determinations - The OPUC removed four capital projects from PGE's proposed 2011 average rate base and provided a mechanism to allow the use of deferred accounting treatment for the revenue requirement associated with the recovery of such projects, effective at the time they are placed in service. A tariff was approved that provides a mechanism to allow future authorization of price changes to reflect the incremental revenue requirement effect of a shortened operating life for the Company's Boardman generating plant, if that were to occur.
