In 2007, the Oregon Legislature passed House Bill 2620, requiring all new public building construction or major renovation projects to spend 1.5 percent of the total contract price on solar energy technology. The investment in solar technology for public buildings includes solar electric or solar thermal systems and passive solar design if it can achieve an energy consumption reduction of at least 20 percent. Public bodies include, but are not limited to, state agencies, community colleges, school districts and education services districts and local governments.
 
In 2012, the Oregon Legislature passed Senate Bill 1533, expanding the types of technologies eligible to meet the 1.5 percent requirement to include geothermal electricity generation or direct use of geothermal energy. SB 1533 becomes effective January 1, 2013.
