Bonneville Power Administration (best known as BPA) is headquartered in Portland, OR, and has been providing over a third of the electricity consumed in the Pacific Northwest for more than 70 years. While we take pride in helping to "keep the lights on" we also fund and manage one of the largest fish and wildlife programs in the world; invest in new renewable generating resources such as wind and geothermal projects; and are proud to be a leading partner in promoting energy conservation and efficiency programs.
How are we able to accomplish so much? It's simple - our people! Not only is our work diverse but so are our employees who enjoy a range of competitive benefits including flexible work schedules, generous leave, secure retirement, and much more. And the best part of all, our employees know they make a difference every day providing a critical service to the public while they get to work, live, and play in the great Pacific Northwest!
