WA State Production Incentive - Investment Cost Recovery (ICR)
Governor Inslee signed new renewable generation legislation SB 5939 into law on July 7, 2017. The law revamps state tax incentives to utilities and changes requirements for utility cost recovery programs. Richland’s Investment Cost Recovery Program remains suspended for new customers until staff assesses the changes to determine if Richland Energy Services will continue offering a program. Staff will provide recommendations to the Utility Advisory Committee (UAC) for consideration at its September 12 meeting. The schedule forward including deliberation by City Council will depend on the results of the UAC meeting

The City must approve the design and metering system prior to the customer connecting to the City’s distribution system. There is no charge for net metering.
