Steps to Apply for Certification of Oregon RPS Eligibility
Please review the Oregon Renewable Portfolio Standards (ORS 469A)
to confirm that your project meets state eligibility requirements. There have been several expansions of eligibility since the last publication date of these Statutes. The following chart provides eligibility guidance.
Register your generating facility as a Generating Unit (GU) in WREGIS. (www.wregis.org
). 3. Application
All applicants must complete a General Application. To help applicants understand what information is required, the Department has published an explanation
of the application.
Supplemental applications may also be required, depending on the resource.
If you installed an efficiency upgrade at your facility, an Efficiency Supplement is also required.
WREGIS Incremental Resource Intake Form
Mail the General Application, required supplements and documentation to RPS.email@example.com.
The Department will review your submission and contact you with questions. Please note that there is no guaranteed response time. As a WREGIS registered generator, you are receiving RECs, but those RECs cannot be used for compliance until the Department certifies the unit as Oregon eligible.
Once approved, the Department will enter a unique Oregon certification number for your generating unit, or GU. The Department will also issue a formal letter to you advising you of your registry.
An expiration date will also be issued, as Renewable Portfolio Standard eligibility adjusts each year with new legislative direction. A periodic review ensures that the unit’s generation remains eligible and that the facility's performance is within expectations. Please be aware of the expiration date and work with the Department to ensure renewal.
