Portland General Electric received bids for 39 new renewable energy projects.

The Portland-based electric utility announced last month that it's looking for around just 100 megawatts of new renewable power resources — enough to serve more than 83,000 typical residential customers — to help comply with Oregon's renewable energy standard.
