Oregon Department of Energy (ODOE) will hold a public hearing to review proposed changes and receive public input on computer modeling guidelines for the State Energy Efficiency Design (SEED) program. The meeting is scheduled for Friday, Aug. 27 at 9 a.m. at ODOE, 625 Marion Street NE in Salem.
SEED was originally established by state law in 1991 to ensure that cost-effective energy conservation measures are included in new and renovated state buildings.
ODOE is revising Appendix L of the SEED Guidelines to encompass changes from the 2010 Oregon Energy Efficiency Specialty Code. The changes affect requirements for computer modeling to predict energy savings. More information on the SEED Program and the Guidelines is at www.oregon.gov/ENERGY/CONS/SEED/index.shtml.
Written comments may be submitted at the hearing. The public also can send comments by mail to SEED Program Manager, 625 Marion St. NE, Salem, OR 97301; or e-mail to james.denno@state.or.us. Comments must be received by 5 p.m. August 27, 2010.
A request for an interpreter for the hearing impaired or for other accommodations for persons with disabilities should be made by contacting ODOE at least 72 hours before the meeting at 1-800-221-8035, TTY 1-800-735-2900, or fax 503-373-7806.
