RES Tier 1 Eligibility

To meet Renewable Energy Standard (RES) load serving entity obligations, eligible generators can produce Tier 1 renewable energy credits (RECs) in the New York Generation Attribute Tracking System (NYGATS). These credits 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.
