Commerce announces spring and summer workshops
Commerce has scheduled six additional CETA workshops for this spring and summer. Workshop dates and topics can be found on the CETA rulemaking webpage and under upcoming events and deadlines below. Details will be provided before the workshops.
Comment opportunity on thermal renewable energy credit (T-RECs) draft language
Commerce is now accepting comments on draft rule language for T-RECs. T-RECs represent the use of biomass energy for a secondary (non-power generation) purpose in a combined heat and power facility. They are an alternative compliance option under CETA’s Greenhouse Gas Neutral standard (RCW 19.405.040). The draft rules were discussed at a stakeholder workshop March 27, and materials from the meeting are available on the CETA rulemaking webpage. Please submit your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 10.
On April 20, Commerce will host a virtual-only workshop to discuss the draft rules and stakeholder comments. Details will be provided before the workshop.
Emissions reporting draft language virtual-only workshop
Commerce will be hosting a virtual-only emissions reporting draft language workshop on April 28. Draft language and meeting details will be posted in advance of the meeting.
