Metering Changes to Oregon’s Clean Fuels Program (CFP)

The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has recently announced changes to the Clean Fuels Program (CFP) that will require meters on forklifts to participate in the program. These changes will go into effect in Q4-23 and are part of an effort to improve energy use reporting. If you are currently participating in the CFP or have signed up for rebates, it is important to be aware of these changes.

Benefits of the Clean Fuels Program

The CFP was created to reduce carbon emissions from transportation fuels in Oregon. It incentivizes the use of cleaner fuels and technologies, such as electric vehicles, biofuels, and natural gas. By participating in the program, businesses can reduce their carbon footprint and improve air quality in the state.
