Although the 2011 Oregon Legislature replaced the Business Energy Tax Credit program with the new Energy Incentives Program, the department still must carry out its obligations to BETC participants before that program officially ends July 1, 2014. The Oregon Department of Energy will hold a public rulemaking hearing on March 26 to review draft administrative rules.

This rulemaking proposes adding an energy performance reporting requirement, requiring BETC projects to report energy performance annually for up to five years after receiving final certification. The energy performance reporting requirement may apply to projects receiving BETC final certification after Jan. 1, 2014. With the data collected, the department plans to reconcile reported energy savings and perform market analysis to determine market saturation and inform incentive development. The rule also proposes to formalize the process used for issuing a new certificate with the sale or disposition of a facility after final certification, as provided in ORS 315.354(5).

More information about this rulemaking – including a summary of the proposed amendments and the draft proposed rules – is located at:
