RPS Rules Development
Rules and Documents Related to Rulemaking
The Oregon Department of Energy (ODOE) filed new and amended rules today for the Oregon Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) program. The rule changes incorporate feedback received from a 14-member advisory committee and the public during a comment period and six public meetings.
 
The rule changes include:
  • Accounting for early generation that is not listed in the existing system;
  • Setting standards for verifying where renewable energy was delivered in the grid;
  • Naming the Low Impact Hydropower Institute certification as the eligibility standard for low-impact hydropower projects; and
  • Describing how equipment upgrades at hydropower facilities may qualify for Renewable Energy Certificates.
