ABSTRACT
This article presents information about the Oregon Biopower Program in Oregon. It is reported that Energy Trust of Oregon Inc. has committed at least $4.7 million to provide financial incentives for new biopower projects able to deliver power in 2006 to Pacific Power or Portland General Electric, the state's major privately held electric utilities. According to Energy Trust officials, the 25 proposed projects total 91 megawatts of gross nameplate capacity--enough energy to power 50,000 average homes. Entities proposing projects are distributed across 17 Oregon counties and include wastewater treatment facilities, landfills, dairies and lumber mills. In addition to Energy Trust incentives, project developers may be eligible for an Oregon Business Energy Tax Credit managed through Oregon Department of Energy. Qualified projects may also be eligible for the Energy Loan Program, which provides low-interest, fixed-rate loans for projects that promote energy conservation or renewable energy resources.
