The following utilities have reached or are nearing their Utility Credit cap. A Utility Credit cap is defined as: one and one-half percent of the businesses’ taxable power sales generated in calendar year 2014 and due under RCW 82.16.020 (1) (b), or two hundred fifty thousand dollars, whichever is greater, up to the utility’s public utility tax liability.
|ORCAS POWER & LIGHT COOPERATIVE||Available funding for incentives through OPALCO is virtually exhausted. WSU EP is processing received applications. Applications submitted after March 28, 2018, will be queued in a “waitlisted – pending funding” status. WSU EP will review incentive payment obligations each fiscal year. If funding becomes available, we will process those applications based on their date of submission to our office. However, there is no guarantee that the statewide $110 million program cap will not be reached before we can consider those applications and, therefore, no guarantee to a queued applicant that they would receive incentive payments.|

Obligated funds for the Renewable Energy Cost Recovery Incentive Program are estimated by adding the estimated incentive payments certified by the Department of Revenue in Q1 of fiscal year 2018 to the utilities’ incentive payments for fiscal year 2017. Renewable Energy Cost Recovery Incentive Program funds are obligated assuming full reapplication from current incentive recipients.
Data presented here represent the number and average system capacity of Renewable Energy System Incentive Program (RESIP) systems. Equivalent statistics for Renewable Energy Cost Recovery Incentive Program (RECRIP) systems can be found here.
By utility information on certified projects is shown on the left of the display below. The number of systems (system count) are shown with bars, the average system capacity (MWdc) represented by circles for residential-scale and commercial-scale project types. State-wide summaries of the number of certified projects and projects with approved precertifications by project type are seen on the right. In addition, state-wide averages for estimated average annual energy production, cost per watt, and annual incentive yields are shown for certified projects.
Interactive program summaries and additional utility-specific information are under development.
These maps show the capacity of systems from the Washington state renewable energy incentive programs.
Interactive maps are under development.
