Stop Taxing Onsite Generation!

This week the OMA joined a chorus of supporters in offering proponent testimony for House Bill 143, a bill that will prevent the state tax department from collecting kilowatt hour tax on electricity that manufacturers produce onsite by modifying the definition of “electric distribution company” for kilowatt-hour tax purposes.

As manufacturers increasingly utilize renewable energy and other forms of onsite generation, the clarification of tax law that HB 143 provides supports energy innovation and manufacturing competitiveness. 2/15/2018
