Electricity suppliers that import, sell, allocate, or distribute electricity to end users in Oregon must report the greenhouse gas emissions and information related to the generation of electricity distributed to end users in this state, regardless of whether the electricity was imported or generated in Oregon, as prescribed in OAR 340-215.
Reporting requirements are specific to electricity supplier type, which include investor-owned utilities, electricity service suppliers, and consumer-owned utilities. There are additional requirements for multi-jurisdictional utilities, asset-controlling suppliers, and third parties who report on behalf of consumer-owned utilities. DEQ’s reporting guidance outlines the applicability and the different reporting requirements for each supplier type.
Entities subject to reporting must do so using Your DEQ Online. The guidance documents below provide additional details on applicability, reporting requirements, and use of Your DEQ Online.
DEQ has delayed the deadline for the reporting of 2020 emissions by Electricity Suppliers to July 16, 2021. In future years, electricity suppliers must annually report by June 1 following the emission calendar year, unless otherwise established by DEQ.
