Earn Credits for the DEQ Clean Fuels Program

1 Jul 2016

Do you:

Own a charger for an electric vehicle? Own a dispenser for propane or natural gas? Produce or import biomethane in Oregon?

Then you may be eligible to earn clean fuel credits. These credits can be sold to fuel importer as a way for them to comply with state clean fuels standards through the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality’s Oregon Clean Fuels Program.

The Oregon Clean Fuels Program officially launched on Jan. 1, 2016, with the goal to reduce the average greenhouse gas emissions of Oregon’s transportation fuels by 10 percent over the next 10 years.

That means using lower carbon biofuels like ethanol, biodiesel or renewable diesel to blend with gasoline and diesel or transitioning to alternative fuels like propane, natural gas, biomethane or electricity.

To generate clean fuels credits through the Oregon Clean Fuels Program, you need to register with DEQ and submit periodic reports about the amount of fuels you are providing.
