Rules Updated to Incorporate 2019 Legislation

The Washington Department of Commerce is updating administrative rules concerning the Energy Independence Act (also known as EIA or I-937) to incorporate changes enacted in 2019.

The Legislature amended the EIA as part of the Clean Energy Transformation Act (SB 5116) in sections 28 and 29. The amendments:

  • Expand eligible incremental hydroelectric generation to include electric from projects marketed by the Bonneville Power Administration.
  • Revise the definition of “renewable energy credit” and clarify eligible uses of these credits.

Draft rules, workshop notices and rulemaking documents will be posted on the Clean Energy Transformation Act web page:
