The committee was set up to assist the Oregon Department of Energy in the permanent rulemaking process for the conservation tax credits that are part of the new Energy Incentives Program, which replaced the Business Energy Tax Credit program. The committee consists of business and industry representatives, community leaders and interest groups.

A public hearing on draft permanent rules is scheduled for May 24, 2012.
