RES Tier 1 Eligibility
The Large-Scale Renewables portfolio is in a period of transition with updates to our website expected in early 2024. In the meantime, please check Open NY for the latest project information.
To meet Renewable Energy Standard (RES) load serving entity obligations, eligible generators can produce Tier 1 renewable energy certificates (RECs) in the New York Generation Attribute Tracking System (NYGATS). These certificates can be used by load serving entities to demonstrate Tier 1 compliance.
Our Eligibility and Certification Guidelines [PDF] include complete details on eligibility requirements.
Biomass facilities should consult the RES biomass power guide [PDF] for additional information when seeking to understand Tier 1 eligibility rules.
