Under HB 2021 the baseline determination for an Electricity Service Supplier is measured as an emissions intensity, on a per megawatt-hour bases. The initial baseline is equivalent to 0.428 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent per megawatt-hour (MTCO2e/MWh). For a supplier certified under ORS 757.649 on or after the effective date of HB 2021 the baseline emissions level is adjusted downward to a level that reflects the progress made by other electricity service suppliers to meet the clean energy targets.
HB2021 requires Portland General Electric and PacifiCorp to submit Clean Energy Plans that include emissions projections showing that the planned actions will result in the required reductions for each of the milestones shown above.
DEQ's responsibility is to provide the emission factors to be used in those projections and review the provided projections to ensure that the calculations and emission factors used comply with DEQ's requirements for GHG accounting under our existing GHG Reporting Program. Read about how DEQ assigns emission factors to generating sources.
Detailed information on GHG emissions accounting and emission factors for use in Clean Energy Plan projections can be found below:
