Permanent Rules

The Oregon Department of Energy filed permanent rules for the Residential Energy Tax Credit program on December 27, 2013. The rule amendments go into effect January 1, 2014.

The permanent rules reduce the solar photovoltaic incentive rate and rework the incentive calculation for wood and pellet stoves. The rule also updates rule language to disallow receiving multiple incentives from the department and defines a single system. For solar photovoltaic projects, the rules require a retail-pricing breakout for material and labor/installation.
