The Oregon Department of Energy invites Business Energy Tax Credit stakeholders to attend a rulemaking advisory committee meeting to discuss requiring BETC projects to report energy performance annually for up to five years after receiving final certification.
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.
ORS 469B.145(2)(b) requires projects to remain in operation for at least five years. Accordingly, the proposed rule would add the requirement that project owners report the energy performance for up to five years after the project is operational. This would only apply to projects receiving BETC final certification after January 1, 2014.
With the data collected, the Oregon Department of Energy plans to reconcile reported energy savings with projected energy savings, and perform market analysis to determine market saturation and inform incentive development. To join the conversation, please visit the Oregon Department of Energy in Salem on January 27th, or call-in (the number is listed below).
For those who cannot make it to Salem, the call-in number is: 1-888-273-3658 Access code: 3125235.
