The Oregon Department of Energy (ODOE) will hold two rulemaking
advisory committee meetings open to the public to gather feedback on proposed
changes to the State Home Oil
Weatherization (SHOW) program rules.
This rulemaking will prepare
the program for the implementation of SB 100 (2017),
which transfers administration of the SHOW program from ODOE to the Oregon Housing
and Community Services Department (OHCS) on January 1, 2018. The proposed rule
amendments will also align rule with statute, which requires eligible dwelling
owners to receive their primary space heating from a fuel oil dealer.
Additionally, the meetings
will provide an opportunity for ODOE and OHCS to provide information and answer
questions about the change in program administration. At the second meeting,
ODOE and OHCS will follow up on outstanding questions and comments. Stakeholders
are encouraged to participate in both meetings.
To provide feedback, please attend or call in to the meetings,
or email Elizabeth Ross at email@example.com.
Materials will be posted on this page prior to the meeting.
FUTURE OPPORTUNITIES TO PARTICIPATE
After the September 28 meeting, ODOE will review comments and update
draft rules for review at the October 11 meeting. The October 11 meeting will
build upon discussions from the September 28 meeting. Interested stakeholders
are encouraged to participate in both meetings. If needed, ODOE will host a
third meeting for further discussion.
After the fall advisory committee meetings, ODOE will review comments
and post an updated draft of the rules. During a public hearing planned for December,
stakeholders may comment on the updated draft rules. The public hearing will be
the final opportunity for comment before ODOE files final rules. ODOE plans for
the rules to be effective December 31, 2017.
