​​​​Like other Oregon state agencies, ODOE operates under a one-biennium (two-​year) budget process. 
2021-23 ODOE Budget

The Oregon Department of Energy's 2021-23 budget bill (​​SB​ 5515​) ​was passed by the legislature on ​June 10, 2021 and signed by the Governor on June 29. 

HB 5006, a budget reconciliation bill, allocated $10 million to ODOE to continue our Oregon Solar + Storage Rebate program and $10.8 million for a new program to incentivize energy efficiency in rebuilding efforts following the September 2020 wildfires.

HB 2021​ also created a $50 million Community Resilient Renewables Investment Fund at ODOE to provide competitive grants for community resili​ence projects. Learn more about ODOE's incentive programs here

ODOE's Biennial Budget Process​

We begin developing our next biennium budget about a year in advance. The budget development process has three major phases:​
  • Agency Request Budget - ODOE starts with the previous biennium's budget, then adds, removes, or adjusts the budget based on program needs and policy responsibilities.
  • Governor's Recommended Budget - The Governor's Office and the Chief Financial Office build on and may revise the Agency Request Budget. The results are presented to the Legislature for consideration.
  • Legislatively Adopted Budget - Legislative committees review proposed budgets and hold public hearings before the full Legislature votes on each agency's budget.
