Salem Renewable Energy and Technology Center (SRETC)

Site Background
Located on prime industrial land, between Culver and Gaffin Roads in southeast Salem, this 80-acre site is development-ready. Situated within minutes of Interstate 5, travel one hour north to the Port of Portland, and 8 hours south to Sacramento, this site offers excellent access for west coast distribution and connection to Oregon's major ports. The City of Salem, and the surrounding region, offers a ready and skilled workforce with motivated partners. 

Site Readiness
The property is zoned Industrial Business Campus (IBC) and has been subdivided to include a mixture of small (2-5 acre) and mid size (10-acre or more) lots, where renewable energy producers, related research, and supporting uses can co-locate. The site is certified “permit ready” by Oregon’s Industrial Site Certification Program. The City has obtained the necessary site permits, including wetlands and waterways. Key infrastructure has been constructed to support the full development, including: water, sewer, storm water, underground electricity, data communications (T-1), and natural gas lines. Internal roadway and frontage improvements to support Phase I of the subdivision have also been completed.  

Several incentives may be available to qualifying businesses within the SRETC, including the Oregon Enterprise Zone and Business Oregon Immediate Opportunity Fund.
