Oregon State Profile and Energy Estimates

Oregon has many renewable energy resources. High annual rainfall in the western part of the state coupled with runoff from the snowpack in mountains across the state make it possible to generate substantial amounts of hydroelectric power. Large dams along the Columbia River generate most of the hydroelectric power not only in Oregon, but throughout the Pacific Northwest. The Columbia River forms much of Oregon’s northern border and cuts through both the Cascade Mountain Range and the Coast Ranges, forming the Columbia Gorge, an area of high wind energy potential.
