‘The Future is Now’: Natural Gas Firms Target Portland

Gas-powered generators like natural gas furnaces are seeing a surge in business in the Portland area as residents prepare for peak demand.

The Portland-based energy company Energy Fuels says it’s adding more than 400 jobs and adding more customers in the next year as more customers start using natural gas and other renewable power sources.

It’s the largest single-site wind farm on the West Coast, with 1.3 million square feet of turbines, and it’s the second largest solar power plant in the region.
