Central Lincoln provides electricity to the communities of Oregon’s central coast. Our service area spans 700 square miles and includes nearly 55,000 people. Central Lincoln maintains very high reliability, and our customers report they are satisfied with our service.
Central Lincoln currently serves customers from operations facilities in Florence, Reedsport and South Beach.
The existing Operations Center in South Beach is an inefficient 60-year-old facility located in the tsunami inundation zone. The building is not built to current earthquake codes, and would likely not withstand a significant earthquake or tsunami.
For these reasons, Central Lincoln is relocating its South Beach facility to an 11-acre parcel in northern Newport. This property is above tsunami inundation zone.
