Two EIP advisory committees to meet May 10
​SALEM — The Oregon Department of Energy has scheduled advisory committee meetings for two of its Energy Incentive Programs: the Alternative Fuel Vehicle Infrastructure tax credit program and the Renewable Energy Development Grants.

Both committees are scheduled to meet in Salem on May 10 at ODOE’s main office (625 Marion Street N.E.):

Alternative Fuel Vehicle Infrastructure Tax Credits
Thursday, May 10
9:00 – 11:30 a.m.

Renewable Energy Development Grants
Thursday, May 10
1:00 – 3:30 p.m.

Both committees will review program rules relating to eligibility criteria, fee requirements and a process for how incentives will be allocated among applicants. The AFVI tax credit committee will also review pass-through and compliance, preliminary certifications and final certifications.

The committees are made up of business and industry representatives. ODOE organized the committees to help with its permanent rulemaking process for the incentive programs. The EIP, created in 2011 by HB 3672, replaces the Business Energy Tax Credit program.

Public hearings on the final permanent rules are tentatively scheduled for June.

To request an interpreter for the hearing-impaired or for other accommodations, please contact Rosa Carbaugh at 503-934-4010 or via fax at 503-934-4006. TTY users should call the Oregon Relay Service at 711.
