Permanent rules filed for Renewable Energy Portfolio Standard

The Oregon Department of Energy filed permanent rules for the Oregon Renewable Portfolio Standard on February 7, 2014. The rules became effective on the filing date.
These permanent rule amendments streamline and increase transparency of the requirements for facilities that generate electricity eligible for the Oregon Renewable Portfolio Standard. Existing rules are amended to describe renewal requirements for low-impact hydro facilities, requirements for periodic review of multiple-fuel facilities, and a one-time review of the performance of certain hydro efficiency upgrades. Amendments also include updated references to the Western Renewable Energy Generation Information System Operating Rules and updated language regarding the tracking of stranded electricity. New rules are adopted to describe the application process for RPS certification, notification requirements for facilities that undergo changes, confidential treatment of information, and clarify that facilities generating electricity from other eligible resources are not subject to review or renewal.
