A person covered by this subsection does not have to obtain a license under ORS 479.910 (Limited energy technician license).


The license issued under this section shall limit the scope of activities that the licensee and licensee’s employees may engage in and in no instance may the scope of the license exceed that of a Class B limited energy technician.


A person applying for licensing under this section shall pay the applicable application fee required under ORS 479.840 (Fees) and provide proof satisfactory to the board that the person has experience of the type of work covered by the license indorsement.


A restricted energy contractor licensee under this section shall:

Issue an identification card to each employee working under the provisions of this section and identify the contractor, date of issue, contractor’s identification number with the board and the Construction Contractors Board; and


Maintain with the board a current form of identification card used by the contractor.


A person holding a limited maintenance specialty contractor’s license under ORS 479.630 (Requirements for obtaining licenses) (12) who also registers under this section shall comply with the identification card requirements of subsection (5) of this section, but need not file a separate list of employees unless the work under the contractor’s license is done by different employees.
