  • BPA has been powering people and careers for 75 years. We provide clean, emissions-free electricity to the Pacific Northwest and maintain a high voltage transmission system to deliver that electricity. We are a leader in sustainability and environmental stewardship, promoting energy efficiency, renewable wind and hydropower, the smart grid, fish and wildlife protection and initiatives to address climate change. We are a visionary and innovative agency that values diversity and creativity and encourages continuous learning. We are located throughout the Pacific Northwest with opportunities in cities, smaller communities and in the field.

    BPA is a not-for-profit federal electric utility. Our high-voltage transmission grid comprises more than 15,000 miles of lines and associated substations in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana. BPA markets more than a third of the electricity consumed in the Pacific Northwest. The power is produced at 31 federal dams operated by the Army Corps of Engineers and Bureau of Reclamation and one nuclear plant in the Northwest and is sold to more than 140 Northwest utilities. BPA purchases power from seven wind projects and has more than 4,700 megawatts of wind interconnected to its transmission system.
