waters, with appeals being heard in the states courts (O.L. 1909, Ch. 216). In the next session, the State Engineer was given responsibility for regulating the states dams (O.L. 1911, Ch. 236). In 1921, the Legislative Assembly named the Governor ex-officio Commissioner of Hydroelectric Power to secure federal aid for Oregon hydroelectric projects and to collect data on hydrological resources (O.L. 1921, Ch. 333). In 1931, a Hydroelectric Commission was created to conserve water resources and to license use and development; the commission was composed of the State Engineer and two governor-appointed individuals (1931 O.L., Ch. 67). The Legislative Assembly initiated regulation of public utilities in 1911, broadly defining the subject to include persons and organizations involved with telegraphs, telephones, street railroads, and the production, transmission and delivery of heat, light, water and power. The broad regulatory responsibility was given to the Railroad Commission (O.L. 1911, Ch. 279), which had been created four years earlier (O.L. 1907, Ch. 53); the voters approved the regulatory scheme in the 1912 general election. This commission is distinct from the Board of Railroad Commissioners that existed at the end of the 19th Century (O.L. 1887, p. 30; O.L. 1898 SS, p. 3). In 1915, the Railroad Commission was renamed the Public Service Commission (O.L. 1915, Ch. 241). The Public Service Commission was replaced by the Office of the Public Utilities Commissioner in 1931; the commission was charged with representing the interests of utility patrons, users and consumers through investigations and hearings; the Commissioner of Public Utilities headed the office (O.L. 1931, Ch. 103). In the next legislative session, the commissioner was granted broad regulatory authority over public utility budgets and expenditures, including the recapture and disposition of operating income in excess of fair return (O.L. 1933, Ch. 441). In 1933, the Legislative Assembly passed a State Power Act, which sought the development, transmission, distribution and sale of power by the State of Oregon. The abortive act envisioned an elected, unaffiliated State Power Commission with powers of eminent domain and rate fixing, the ability to work separately or in conjunction with the federal government, and wide discretion to control, sell and dispose of all manner of electric energy (O.L. 1933, Ch. 357). Following a statewide referendum, however, the State Power Act was rejected in the 1934 general election. In 1943, ground was broken for the construction of nuclear reactors at the Hanford Site in southeastern Washington state as part of the Manhattan Project to construct the first atomic bomb. The Hanford Site later housed nine nuclear reactors and associated processing facilities, and played a central role in American defense planning for over 40 years. Hanfords peak production (and waste generation) period was from 1956 to 1965; its accumulated byproducts ultimately included more than 53 million gallons of radioactive and chemically hazardous waste in 177 underground storage tanks; 2,300 tons of spent nuclear fuel; 9 tons of plutonium in various forms; and approximately 25 million cubic feet of buried or stored solid waste (Hanford). In 1955, the Legislative Assembly passed the State Water Resources Act, creating the State Water Resources Board, a seven-member governor-appointed group charged with studying, conserving and augmenting water resources, and developing control of the beneficial uses, such as irrigation, power development, industry, mining, recreation, wildlife and fish life. The State Engineer was designated as the boards engineer, upon its acceptance of the appointment. The Hydroelectric Commission referred license applications that potentially prejudiced the public interest to the Water Resources Board, which conducted public hearings (O.L. 1955, Ch. 707). 2
site. In 1979, Oregon required proposed radioactive waste disposal facilities to complete an application process through the EFSC, which was authorized to enter agreements with DOE and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to dispose of radioactive waste (O.L. 1979, Ch. 283). In 1979, the Legislative Assembly created an Alternative Energy Development Commission of nine governor-appointed members one from each of seven alternative energy task forces (representing solar, wind, geothermal, forest/agricultural residue, water and gasohol power), and three citizens broadly representing alternative energy. The task forces were requested to compile resource-specific development plans, and comments of the Energy Policy Review Committee; and the commission was tasked with drafting a comprehensive alternative energy development plan for consideration by the Governor and Legislative Assembly (O.L. 1979, Ch. 329). The 60th Legislative Assembly created ODOEs Small Scale Energy Loan Program (SELP) as a self-supporting provider of long-term, low-interest loans for the creation of energy projects that utilize solar, wind, geothermal, biomass, waste heat, water or other renewables. Project financing was made contingent upon Director approval, with advice from the Small Scale Local Energy Project Advisory Committee. Oregons legislators created a Small Scale Local Energy Project Administration and Bond Sinking Fund separate from the General Fund for loan payments (O.L. 1979, Ch. 672). A Small Scale Local Energy Project Loan Fund was created to facilitate bond issuance and the levying of ad valorem taxes to finance the projects (SJR 24); voters approved the constitutional amendment in a 1980 special election. SELP made its first loan in 1981. Cost-effectiveness was formally added to Oregons energy policy in 1979, mandating state agency consideration of cost escalations, future availability of fuels, waste disposal and decommission costs, transmission and distribution costs, geographic and climatic differences in the state, and environmental impacts, whenever choosing new energy resources, facilities or conservation measures (O.L. 1979, Ch. 723). Oregon state agencies were also required to have a life cycle cost analysis prepared in the construction or renovation of any major facility (O.L. 1979, Ch. 734). Legislative tax relief was created for ODOE-certified facilities that conserved energy resources or met their energy requirements through the use of renewable resources (O.L. 1979, Ch. 512). City and county land use authorities were barred from instituting construction restrictions that would render solar energy collection unfeasible; real property conveyances that prohibited the use of solar energy systems were similarly voided (O.L. 1979, Ch. 671). In 1979, the Legislative Assembly directed ODOE to conduct a study of the Three Mile Island nuclear power plant accident in Pennsylvania to ascertain what the State of Oregon should do to prevent similar events, and to examine the availability and cost of the long-term storage of the radioactive waste generated by nuclear-fueled thermal power plants. The study results were designated for inclusion in any pending nuclear installation site certificate proceedings; and the EFSC was precluded from issuing site certificate approvals for nuclear installations prior to November 15, 1980 (O.L. 1979, Ch. 510). In the 1980 general election, Oregonians mandated voter approval and the existence of a waste facility prior to any future licensing of nuclear power plants in the state. The Legislative Assembly tightened this requirement in its next session, requiring the EFSC to find an adequate, terminal and federally-licensed repository for the disposal of high level radioactive waste prior to issuing a site certificate for a nuclear-fueled thermal power plant; and mandating voter approval of the proposed plants site certificate in a statewide general election. The Public Utility Commissioner (PUC) was also precluded from financing new nuclear power plants without the prior approval of the EFSC (O.L. 1981, Ch. 1). 5
In 1980, Congress passed the Pacific Northwest Electric Power Planning and Conservation Act to address the impact of hydroelectric dams on the fish and wildlife of the Columbia River (P.L. 96-501). The act authorized Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Washington to enter an interstate compact creating the Pacific Northwest Electric Power and Conservation Planning Council, which was composed of two governor-appointed representatives from each member state. Oregon formalized its participation the next year (O.L. 1981, Ch. 49). The council sought the development of a 20-year electric power plan to ensure adequate and reliable energy at the lowest cost to the Northwest region; creation of a program to protect and rebuild the fish and wildlife populations adversely affected by hydroelectric development in the Columbia River Basin; and the involvement of the public in the councils decision-making. The council changed its full name to the Northwest Power and Conservation Council in 2003. Congress also passed the Low-Level Radioactive Waste Policy Act in 1980 (P.L. 96-573), authorizing interstate compacts for the regional disposal and management of radioactive waste. The State of Oregon became a member of the newly formed Northwest Low-Level Radioactive Compact Committee, composed of eight governor-appointed individuals from the member states (O.L. 1981, Ch. 497). In 1981, the Governor was directed to consult with ODOE and the Economic Development Department in preparation of a statewide plan to enable the maintenance of emergency services, continuation of productivity, and reduction of hardship in the event of an energy emergency jeopardizing the health, safety and welfare of the people of Oregon (O.L. 1981, Ch. 597). ODOE was instructed to expand the Energy Conservation Clearinghouse for Commerce and Industry to provide current information to business and industry on the availability of public financing for conservation efforts. ODOE was instructed to monitor industry conservation progress, and to report to the Energy Policy Review Committee and the Legislative Assembly with proposed legislation for improved conservation, an assessment of financing options, and an inventory of industrial energy uses (O.L. 1981, Ch. 865). ODOE was also directed to develop weatherization standards for existing homes in consultation with the Energy Conservation Board (O.L. 1981, Ch. 565). The PUC was drafted into the conservation movement, receiving a directive to adopt rules, in consultation with ODOE, requiring gas and electric utilities to publicize and offer their customers on-site energy audits and technical conservation assistance (O.L. 1981, Ch. 708). In 1982, the Legislative Assembly lifted the site certification requirement for small energy recovery facilities utilizing wood waste, straw, forest slash, farm waste and/or solid waste (O.L. 1982 SS, Ch. 6). In 1983, ODOEs odd-numbered year reporting to the Governor and Legislative Assembly was expanded to include the delivery of a plan, including energy forecasts for utilities, emerging trends in the industry, and anticipated five, ten and twenty-year energy demands for Oregon. The Legislative Assembly also sought an ongoing inventory of state energy resources, consistency with the fish and wildlife programs of the Pacific Northwest Electric Power and Planning Council, and recommendations for the research, development and demonstration of the cost-effectiveness of available conservation and renewable measures (O.L. 1983, Ch. 273). In 1985, the Legislative Assembly signed off on the creation of an independent nonprofit public corporation, the Citizens Utility Board (CUB), to serve as an advocate for the needs and interests of PUC-regulated utility consumers before Oregons legislative, administrative and judicial bodies. CUB was empowered to intervene and participate as an interested party in agency proceedings, granted standing to obtain administrative and judicial review of agency actions, and permitted to include educational information in utility bills (O.L. 1985, Ch. 1). CUBs creation was authorized by the voters in the 1984 general election. 6
The protection of natural resources from the adverse impacts of hydropower was added to Oregons energy policy in 1985, subjecting hydroelectric facility siting to strict standards. The EFSC, Water Policy Review Board, Department of Environmental Quality, and other state agencies were instructed to fully participate in local, state and federal proceedings regarding hydropower. Agency actions were required to be consistent with the preservation of anadromous salmon and steelhead, and the Columbia River Basin Fish and Wildlife Program, as provided by the Pacific Northwest Electric Power and Conservation Program (O.L. 1985, Ch. 569). In 1985, the list of off-limit areas for the location of waste disposal facilities for uranium mine tailings and radioactive waste was dramatically widened to include places of creek, river and ocean erosion, 500 year flood plains, active fault zones, places of movement or landslide, and areas that have experienced volcanic activity in the past two million years. The EFSC was required to issue findings demonstrating no better available site prior to selecting any location for a radioactive waste disposal facility (O.L. 1985, Ch. 4). Striving to reduce energy costs, the 63rd Legislative Assembly steered Oregon toward a cooperative agreement with Washington, Idaho and Montana for the purpose of collectively controlling the wholesale power costs and rates of the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA). Oregon sought a regional response to arbitrary interest rate increases on federal funds previously used to build public facilities in the Pacific Northwest; federal initiatives to sell the BPA; rate increases in excess of actual need; the regional use of surplus firm power to provide long-term use for job development; and power transmission intertie access (O.L. 1985, Ch. 780). ODOE was also legislatively directed to set aside funds for research, development and demonstration of new renewable resource generating and conservation technologies (O.L. 1985, Ch. 745). In November 1986, Oregon voters rejected a measure prohibiting the operation of a nuclear plant in the state until the licensing of a permanent waste site. In the following year, the Legislative Assembly gave ODOE the responsibility of supporting the newly-created Oregon Hanford Waste Board in its protection of Oregons interest in any federal designation of the Hanford Site as a national repository for nuclear waste (O.L. 1987, Ch. 514); ODOE had been actively involved in several issues concerning the Hanford Site since 1983. The Legislative Assembly enshrined a special election voter-enacted initiative approving a state role for Oregon in any federal selection of a high level nuclear waste repository site in the state (O.L. 1987, Chs. 12 and 13). It also allocated $461,000 to ODOE for use on the Lakeview uranium mill cleanup site, and authorized the Treasury Departments creation of an Energy Efficiency Construction Account for the provision of engineering and technical assistance in Oregons public buildings (O.L. 1987, Ch. 206). The PUC was also changed to a three-member, governor-appointed commission in this session (O.L. 1987, Ch. 834); voters approved the new structure in the 1986 general election. In 1989, ODOE was directed to develop a strategy to reduce the emission of gases contributing to global warming in consultation with the Energy Policy Review Committee. It was instructed to prioritize conservation, renewable resources and alternative fuels, and to seek advice from the Department of Transportation, Department of Land Conservation and Development, PUC, State Climatologist in the Department of Atmospheric Sciences at Oregon State University, and the Pacific Northwest Electric Power and Conservation Council (O.L. 1989, Ch. 466). The EFSC and ODOE were each authorized to enter cooperative agreements with federal agencies in implementing the 1980 federal Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (P.L. 96-510), more commonly known as the Superfund Law 7
(or CERCLA). The Legislative Assembly was specifically interested in the cleanup of waste from Oregon uranium mining, and lifted the site certification necessities for purposes of these efforts (O.L. 1989, Ch. 496). In 1989, ODOEs Director was also authorized to impose safety conditions (and/or completely halt) the transport or disposal of radioactive materials in Oregon, and enabled to delegate any related permitting of such transport to the PUC (O.L. 1989, Ch. 6). Oregon state agencies were ordered to incorporate all reasonable cost-effective energy conservation measures and alternative energy systems in constructing or renovating facilities, and to deliver contemplated construction plans to ODOE during the design phase. ODOE was ordered to develop rules regarding the cost effectiveness of energy conservation measures and alternative energy systems, the procedures to use in determining the sufficiency of the design, and the fees to charge agencies for plan review; the agency was requested to report to the Energy Policy Review Committee with an evaluation of agency compliance (O.L. 1989, Ch. 556). Oregonians rejected three separate initiatives to prohibit, ban or close Portland General Electrics (PGEs) Trojan nuclear power plant until waste, cost, earthquake and storage standards were met first in the 1990 general election, and twice more in the 1992 general election. In 1991, the Legislative Assembly requested that ODOE assess, in consultation with the Economic Development Department, Oregons methane, ethanol, solar electric and other renewable fuel production capacity; the feasibility of achieving state fuel independence; the investment needs for the cost-effective development of renewable fuel production; and the cost of replacing the Department of Transportations gas vehicles with compressed natural gas vehicles (O.L. 1991, Ch. 933). The Legislative Assembly increased the public membership of the Oregon Hanford Waste Board was increased from one to ten members, and requested that the board coordinate with the State of Washington (O.L. 1991, Ch. 562). Implementing Oregon public policy that state agency facilities be designed, constructed and renovated to minimize the consumption of energy in operation and maintenance, ODOE created the State Energy Efficiency Design (SEED) program in 1991 to ensure the inclusion of cost-effective energy conservation measures. In 1993, the Legislative Assembly curtailed the discretion of the EFSC, explicitly outlining the actions and considerations it would move through in approving Oregons future energy facilities; as part of this process, the Legislative Assembly also created a special advisory group, composed of the governing body of the local government in the location of the proposed facility, to determine whether the state land use goals have been met (O.L. 1993, Ch. 569). Governor Barbara Roberts issued an executive order in 1993 creating the State Energy Initiative, 20 by 2000, directing state agencies to reduce energy use in facilities and transportation by at least 20 percent by the year 2000; ODOE was given the lead role in implementing the directive (EO-93-11). The Legislative Assembly called for state agencies to improve energy efficiency onsite through conservation, cogeneration and renewables, and ordered ODOE to develop procedural rules for the contracting of this work with utility companies (O.L. 1993, Ch. 86). The Department of General Services was abolished in this legislative session, and its responsibilities transferred to the new Department of Administrative Services (DAS) (O.L. 1993, Ch. 500). In 1995, the Legislative Assembly instituted major structural changes at ODOE, subsuming the agency within the Department of Consumer and Business Services as the Office of Energy, transferring the EFSC to DAS, and abolishing the Energy Policy Review Committee (O.L. 1995, Ch. 551). The EFSCs application and approval process was amended, and its authority extended to include inspection authority over established facilities; the EFSC was also ordered to create 8
Assembly stipulated in 2005 that any person acquiring all or a portion of any allocated territory of PGE, or acquiring the right to provide utility service within PGE territory, would assume a proportionate share of the Trojan nuclear plant obligations (O.L. 2005, Ch. 630). Trojan ceased operations in 1993; decommissioning was completed in 2004, and it was demolished in 2006. In 2007, the Legislative Assembly passed a range of legislation impacting Oregon energy. As sought by the Governor and ODOEs Renewable Energy Working Group, a Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) was established requiring that 25 percent of the states electricity will originate from new renewables by 2025. Wind, solar, ocean, geothermal, biomass and other ODOEdesignated renewable generation facilities in the 14 Western Electricity Coordinating Council (WECC) states were identified as eligible. The legislation, Senate Bill 838, also extended the public purpose charge through 2025, and limited its renewable energy expenditures to projects of 20 megawatts or less in order to encourage a diversity of renewables. ODOE was directed to establish a system of renewable energy certificates (RECs) to assure compliance, and to conduct studies of the RPSs impact on the creation of new jobs in the renewable energy field (O.L. 2007, Ch. 301; ORS 469A). In 2008, the Western Renewable Energy Generation Information System (WREGIS) was selected by ODOE as Oregons REC tracking and reporting system for use in achieving RPS compliance; the WREGIS database is administered by WECC to monitor renewable energy generation in the states and provinces covered by the Western Interconnection. The Legislative Assembly provided a package of measures to encourage greater development, distribution and use of agricultural and forest materials for biofuels and electricity in 2007; it expanded property tax incentives for biofuel production facilities, established a tax credit for producers and collectors of biofuel raw materials, created an income tax credit for consumers of ODOE-certified biofuels, and expanded the Rural Renewable Energy Zones to include property used to produce biofuels. ODOE was requested to conduct impact studies, including data on job creation, acres of biofuel feedstock planted, gallons of fuel produced and consumed, production costs relative to petroleum, and environmental impacts (O.L. 2007, Chs. 590 and 739). The 74th Legislative Assembly created the Oregon Global Warming Commission to coordinate state and local efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The commission was charged with examining cap and trade systems, developing an educational strategy on global warming issues, and tracking the impact of global warming in Oregon. The 25-member commission comprised 11 governor-appointed voting members representative of the social, environmental, cultural and economic diversity of the state. ODOEs Director was designated an ex officio member of the commission; and the agency was directed to provide clerical, technical and management support. The legislation also created the Oregon Climate Research Institute (OCCRI) to facilitate climate change research in the Oregon University System, and to serve as an information clearinghouse; Oregon State University was authorized to administer the OCCRI (O.L. 2007, Ch. 907). Oregon Community Power was created in 2007 as a consumer-owned, PUC-regulated, public corporation to potentially provide reliable, low-cost electricity in a service territory where an incumbent private utility was for sale and its customers wanted public ownership. A five-person nominating committee representing diverse interests was established to nominate candidates for the Governors selection of a Board of Directors; the seven Board members would be subject to Senate confirmation. The legislation (SB 443) established a Utility Acquisition Fund separate from the General Fund. Oregon Community Power would be a successor in interest to an incumbent utility, and could not use eminent domain in acquisition (without the utilitys consent). It was stipulated that Oregon Community Power would not diminish the amount of 11
power or lowest-cost rates from BPA, and would preserve access to the Pacific Northwest Electric Power and Planning and Conservation Act, allow nonresidential consumers direct access, and offer a cost-of-service rate option to retail customers (O.L. 2007, Ch. 807). The Business Energy Tax Credit (BETC) was amended to provide greater incentives for renewables, increasing the tax credit for renewable energy systems installed by businesses from 35 percent to 50 percent, the project cost limit from $10 million to $20 million, and the size of hydro projects eligible for the tax credit from one megawatt to ten for projects that meet state and federal fish and wildlife requirements. The Residential Energy Tax Credit (RETC) was widened to allow more than one qualifying item in the same year; the maximum credit for fuel cells and wind generation was increased from $1,500 to $6,000 over four years (O.L. 2007, Ch. 843). The Legislative Assembly authorized $150 million in bonds for SELP in 2007, a $25 million increase over the previous biennium (2007 O.L., Ch. 734). Minimum energy efficiency standards were passed for additional appliances and electrical equipment, and ODOE was granted tailored rulemaking authority for implementation of additional standards (O.L. 2007, Ch. 375). State and local government planners utilizing state funds were required to devote at least 1.5 percent of construction and renovation costs to solar energy technologies; ODOE was requested to establish rules regarding the use and cost-effectiveness of particular solar energy systems, and to report its findings to the 75th and 76th Legislative Assemblies (O.L. 2007, Ch. 310). The result at ODOE was the 1.5% for Solar Technology in Public Buildings program, which began operations on January 1, 2008. ODOE was also directed to evaluate state statutes and building codes regarding the impact of outdoor lighting on energy efficiency (O.L. 2007, Ch. 551). In the 2008 special session, the Legislative Assembly directed ODOE to establish guidelines for the reduction of energy usage in state agency facilities by at least 20 percent by 2015 (O.L. 2008 SS, Ch. 26); this directive was implemented by ODOE in its SEED program. BETC was extended to the manufacturers of renewable energy resource equipment, and the agency was requested to develop standards for the constitution of such properties and facilities (O.L. 2008 SS, Ch. 29). In June 2008, pursuant to a 2006 executive order (EO-06-02), the Legislative Emergency Board approved the Community Renewable Energy Feasibility (CREF) program to support feasibility studies for community renewable energy projects, and to encourage development and utilization of Oregon's renewable resources; ODOE was directed to establish and administer the program in coordination with the Oregon Department of Justice (DOJ). The CREF program is underwritten for the agency with funds obtained by the DOJ in negotiated settlements of claims arising from the West Coast energy crisis of 2000 and 2001. In December 2008, Governor Kulongoski created the Oregon Energy Planning Council (OEPC) and directed its 11 appointed members to provide a biennial energy planning report with recommendations, and ongoing counsel on energy forecasting, transmission, price stability, efficiency, and renewable and alternative energy sources. The Chair of the EFSC was designated an ex officio member of the Council; ODOE was directed to provide staff support (EO-08-26)
Current Organization ODOEs Directors Office leads the agency and serves as policy advisor to the Governor and the Legislative Assembly on energy issues. The Directors Office coordinates Oregon energy policy with various state and federal agencies, including the Northwest Power and Conservation Council, the Public Utility Commission of Oregon (PUC), Bonneville Power Administration 12
(BPA), and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). The Director is appointed by the Governor to supervise ODOEs day-to-day functions; to supervise and facilitate the work and research on energy facility siting applications at the direction of the Energy Facility Siting Council (EFSC); to hire, assign, reassign and coordinate personnel; and to adopt rules and issue orders to carry out the duties of the agency in accordance with ORS 469.010 (ORS 469.040; OAR 330; OAR 345). The Northwest Power and Conservation Council (formerly the Pacific Northwest Electric Power and Planning Council) is a comprehensive planning agency for energy, fish and wildlife policy in the Columbia River Basin, and composed of representatives from Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Washington. The PUC is an Oregon state agency that regulates utility industries to ensure that customers receive safe, reliable services at reasonable rates, while promoting competitive markets; it regulates the customer rates and services of Oregons investor-owned electric and natural gas companies, certain telephone services and water utilities. BPA is part of the federal DOE; it was created by the Bonneville Project Act of 1937 (Aug. 20, 1937, Ch. 720, 50 Stat. 731) to deliver and sell power from the Bonneville Dam on the Columbia River. BPA markets wholesale electrical power from 31 federal hydroelectric projects in the Columbia River Basin, one nonfederal nuclear plant and several small nonfederal power plants. BPA produces about one-third of the electric power used in the Northwest; it serves Idaho, Oregon, Washington, western Montana and small parts of eastern Montana, California, Nevada, Utah and Wyoming. ODOEs Central Services Division provides critical support to the agency, including budgeting and finance; account, contract and grant management; mail and reception services; records and facilities management; and information services. As the most environmentally clean, and least expensive (over the long term) natural resource, conservation is the cornerstone of Oregons energy policy. ODOEs Conservation Division provides information to consumers, demonstrates new technologies, and offers a variety of programs to encourage Oregonians to conserve energy and use renewable resources. Since 1975, every Legislative Assembly has reaffirmed the State of Oregons commitment to conservation and renewable resources. The Conservation Division administers residential and business energy tax incentive programs to encourage efficient building design, energy conservation, recycled material use, renewable energy resource installation, fuel cell utilization, less-polluting transportation fuels, and the purchase of more efficient appliances. ODOEs Conservation Division also provides access to best practices and technical assistance to industrial consumers; evaluations and contractor selection assistance to schools; and commission, construction and renovation assistance to Oregon schools, state agencies and local governments. ODOE offers tax credits to businesses encouraging them to invest in energy conservation, renewable resources, recycling, alternative fuels, transportation efficiency and sustainable buildings through the Conservation Divisions Business Energy Tax Credit (BETC) Program. The owner of a project may transfer or pass-through the tax credit to an Oregon business in exchange for cash payment; the project owner may be a public or non-profit institution (OAR 330 Division 90). As new energy-saving products and technologies have come on the market, the Legislative Assembly has expanded the Residential Energy Tax Credit (RETC) program to encourage their usage (OAR 330 Division 70). The State Home Oil Weatherization (SHOW) program administers the statute requiring fuel oil dealers to provide home energy audits and financing for weatherization projects by their customers (OAR 330 Divisions 60 and 61).
Through its Northwest Energy Efficient Manufactured Home Program (NEEM) program, ODOE has worked with the manufactured home industry in the Pacific Northwest since 1988. The program evaluates and certifies energy measures for buildings constructed as NEEM or Energy Star homes. The NEEM/Energy Star program develops prescriptive paths for manufacturers to follow in building energy efficient homes, performs surveys of homes after construction, and provides post-occupancy troubleshooting for utilities, manufacturers, and homebuyers. Energy Star is a joint program of the federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and DOE that identifies and labels energy efficient products that exceed minimum efficiency standards; the program rates efficiency in more than 50 categories of home and business products and practices. The State Energy Efficiency Design (SEED) program requires Oregon state agencies to work with ODOEs Conservation Division to ensure that cost-effective energy conservation measures are included in new and renovated agency facilities (ORS 276.900 to 276.915; OAR 330 Division 130). The 1.5 Percent for Solar Technology in Public Buildings Program requires Oregon state agencies and local governments to spend an amount equal to at least 1.5 percent of a public improvement contract for the construction of a public building on the inclusion of appropriate solar energy technology in the facility (ORS 279C.528; OAR 330 Division 135). Oregons electric industry restructuring law sets aside funds for improving the energy efficiency of schools in the service areas of PGE and Pacific Power. Senate Bill 1149 required these two investor-owned utilities to collect a three percent public purpose charge from its customers. Ten percent of the money SB 1149 Funds is required to go towards energy efficiency efforts in public schools within their service areas. ODOEs Conservation Division facilitates the administration of the public purpose funds in cooperation with Education Service Districts and individual school districts. The division provides technical oversight for the energy audits and projects to ensure consistency statewide with the program guidelines. ODOE provides statewide technical assistance and training for school staff and contractors on building highly efficient, productive and environmentally sound buildings. The Conservation Division provides lists of qualified energy auditors and commissioning agents to facilitate contracting for energy efficiency improvements in schools. The Large Electricity Consumer Public Purpose Program reviews and certifies self-direction applications from large electricity consumers for qualifying conservation projects and renewable energy resources (ORS 757.612; OAR 330 Division 140). Investment of the energy conservation and renewable resource portions of the SB 1149 Funds (see History, 2007, above) is managed by a non-governmental, non-profit organization called the Energy Trust of Oregon. The Energy Trust is overseen by a volunteer board, appointed by the PUC, which develops the purpose, structure, and operational guidelines for the organization. Sub-committees include representatives from the utility industry, consumer groups, renewable energy organizations and ODOE; the sub-committees advise the nonprofit board on promising services, technologies or practices that meet energy efficiency or renewable resource goals. The low-income weatherization and low-income housing portions of the SB 1149 Funds are administered by the Oregon Housing and Community Services Department (ORS 757.612). The Energy Loan Program (SELP) promotes energy conservation and renewable energy resource development in Oregon. SELP is a self-supporting, borrower-funded program that loans money to individuals, businesses, schools, cities, counties, special districts, state and federal agencies, public corporations, cooperatives, tribes and non-profit organizations. SELPs loan funds are generated through the issuance of Oregon general obligation bonds, and generally fall into one of four categories: energy conservation, energy production from renewable resources, usage of 14
Oregon. Created in 2005, the divisions mission is to encourage greater use of renewable energy and alternative fuels in Oregon, and to attract renewable energy manufacturers. The Renewable Energy and Communications Division provides leadership for the Governors Renewable Energy Action Plan (REAP). The plan is designed to encourage production of energy from renewable sources, demonstrate a variety of technologies, and remove barriers. Renewable resource development provides energy independence, helps protect Oregonians from high-energy prices, and promotes economic growth. The division staffs the 35-member Renewable Energy Working Group (REWG), which is implementing the REAP. The division is the lead for implementing those portions of the West Coast Governors Climate Change Initiative that pertain to renewable energy and alternative fuels. The Global Warming Commission, created by the Legislative Assembly in 2007, is staffed by the division. The division brings together technical experts and policy advisors, who focus ODOEs efforts on the development of renewable energy projects. In support of the Governors REWG, the Renewable Energy program staffs less formal technology-specific groups, including the Oregon Biomass Coordinating Group, Oregon Geothermal Working Group, Oregon Wind Working Group, Solar Energy Working Group, and Small Scale Hydroelectric Working Group. The Renewable Energy program also serves as the central repository for the Global Warming Commissions records and proceedings; administers the Community Renewable Energy Feasibility (CREF) program to support feasibility studies for community renewable energy projects; and administers the agencys energy planning program, which includes providing staff support to the Oregon Energy Planning Council (OEPC). The Communications program maintains the agency website; provides public information officer support on state energy issues; helps manage public records request; and provides staff support for working groups, committees, and other projects as needed.
