hexafluoride leak rate for high voltages

PGE will maintain the sf 6 leak rate below 1% (with a stretch goal of 0.7% leak rate). PGE will evaluate and purchase addition pilot alternatives to sf 6 high-voltage equipment while meeting the established sf6-gas phase out dates. PGE will maintain the sf6-gas-free status on our medium-voltage equipment.
