SOURCE DOCUMENT DETER. NO DATE OF ISSUE DESCRIPTION
WAC: 458-20-273 01/15/14 Renewable energy system cost recovery 
WAC 458-20-273 Renewable energy system cost recovery explains the renewable energy incentive program created by the enabling statutes found at RCW 82.16.110 through 82.16.130. Senate Bill 5526 (Chapter 179, Laws of 2011) amended RCW 82.16.110 through RCW 82.16.120 adding solar stirling converters manufactured in Washington to the list of qualified renewable energy devices or components. This rule-making effort was to recognize these statutory changes and to address and clarify other issues that have been identified during the Department's administration of this program.
