The Oregon Heat program receives its funds through donations made by Pacific Power & Light customers. Oregon HEAT is an independent nonprofit organization founded in 1989 to help low-income Oregonians become more energy self-reliant. Oregon HEAT’s primary program objective is to prevent disconnection of utility service during inclement weather by providing bill payment assistance to low income households in emergency situations.
