By rule and after hearing, the Director of the State Department of Energy may adopt a schedule of reasonable fees that the State Department of Energy may require of applicants for a grant for a renewable energy production system under ORS 469B.250 (Definitions for ORS 469B.250 to 469B.265) to 469B.265 (Policies and procedures) or for tax credit certification under ORS 315.326 (Renewable energy development contributions). Before the adoption or revision of the fees, the department shall estimate the total cost of the program to the department. The fees shall be used to recover the anticipated cost of administering and enforcing the provisions of ORS 469B.250 (Definitions for ORS 469B.250 to 469B.265) to 469B.265 (Policies and procedures), including filing, investigating, granting and rejecting applications for grant or tax credit certification and ensuring compliance with ORS 315.326 (Renewable energy development contributions), 315.329 (Funding in lieu of tax credit certification) and 469B.250 (Definitions for ORS 469B.250 to 469B.265) to 469B.265 (Policies and procedures) and shall be designed not to exceed the total cost estimated by the department. Any excess fees shall be held by the department and shall be used by the department to reduce any future fee increases. The fee may vary according to the size and complexity of the system. The fee is not considered part of the cost of the system for which a grant is being sought. [2011 c.730 §31]
