RPS Compliance
Compliance with the Standard
 

Only three Oregon utilities – PacifiCorp, Portland General Electric, and Eugene Water and Electric Board – have Renewable Portfolio Standard compliance obligations before 2025.  
 
The first compliance year for these utilities is 2011. Portland General Electric and PacifiCorp will file compliance plans for each subsequent year annually in June.

To follow the PUC dockets for RPS compliance, please visit the eDockets page on the PUC website

Large and small utility compliance tiers under the Standard
 
Utilities that deliver over 3% of the state’s electrical load are considered "large utilities" under the law.  (ORS 469A.052)   Large utilities must provide their electric customers with 25% specified renewable resources by 2025.  Compliance with the Standard also requires interim performance tiers of 5% in 2011; 15% in 2015; and 20% in 2020.
 
Utilities that serve less than 3% of Oregon's load are "small utilities" and must meet a 5% or 10% threshold in 2025.  (ORS 469A.055)  Utilities that grow to serve more than 3% of Oregon’s load may become subject to the large utility requirements.
