(1) A publicly owned utility may meet the program submission requirements of ORS 469.651 (Publicly owned utility program) by submitting only the portions of its residential energy conservation program that are added to or revised in its program approved under section 4, chapter 887, Oregon Laws 1977, in order to make that earlier program fulfill the requirements of ORS 469.651 (Publicly owned utility program).

(2) A publicly owned utility shall offer a dwelling owner a financing program for cost-effective energy conservation measures that includes the option of a cash payment or a loan unless the publicly owned utility offers another financing program that meets or exceeds the program required in ORS 469.651 (Publicly owned utility program) (3). A program shall be considered to meet or exceed the program required in ORS 469.651 (Publicly owned utility program) (3) when it includes a financial incentive to the residential customer with a present value on November 1, 1981, that is equal to or greater than the present value of the larger of:

(a) The loan subsidy pursuant to ORS 469.651 (Publicly owned utility program) (3)(a)(A); or

(b) The cash payment pursuant to ORS 469.651 (Publicly owned utility program) (3)(a)(B).

(3) A publicly owned utility whose governing body has adopted an approved residential energy conservation services program under the National Energy Conservation Policy Act (Public Law 95-619, as amended on November 1, 1981) or signed an energy conservation agreement with the Bonneville Power Administration of the United States Department of Energy for a residential weatherization program under section 6(a) of the Pacific Northwest Electric Power Planning and Conservation Act (Public Law 96-501, as adopted December 5, 1980) that meets or exceeds the requirements of ORS 469.651 (Publicly owned utility program) and 469.657 (Conditions for cash payments to dwelling owner by publicly owned utility) shall not be required to submit a separate program.
