The Oregon Department of Energy’s Siting Division takes an active interest in projects which fall outside the jurisdiction of the Energy Facility Siting Council.
Proposed energy generation projects (with the exception of hydropower) or infrastructure projects that have triggered analysis under the National Environmental Policy Act are monitored by ODOE and EFSC to ensure the best interests of the state of Oregon are considered.
In some cases, the Oregon Department of Energy will coordinate with
other state agencies to provide comments on non-EFSC projects. In those cases,
ODOE will establish a separate webpage with specific information and links
regarding the project.
