Oregon requires solar equipment certification for the state's business and personal tax credits, property tax exemptions, to qualify for utility grant and loan programs, and in order to comply with building codes. Certification is done by the Oregon Office of Energy (OOE). Acceptable certification standards and organizations include Solar Rating and Certification Corporation (SRCC), Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Institute (ARI), Florida Solar Energy Center (FSEC), and the Oregon Office of Energy. Oregon's rules for solar energy equipment certification are based on the federal Solar Heating and Cooling Act of 1974.
