Renewable Energy Source Eligibility Applications
A customer-sited source with a capacity of 100 kilowatts or less, or with an equivalent thermal output, shall demonstrate its eligibility to acquire certificates by submitting an application under this section.
Renewable Energy Source Eligibility for Sources with a Capacity of 100 Kilowatts or Less
The application for sources with a nameplate capacity of 100 kilowatts or less must meet the requirement set forth in RSA 362-F:4 and include the information requirements established in Puc 2505.02 (a) and Puc 2505.02 (b).
Please note that the NEPOOL GIS requires a GIS facility code number for Renewable Energy Certificates to be credited.
Renewable Energy Source Eligibility for Sources with a Capacity of Greater than 100 Kilowatts
The application for sources with a nameplate capacity of greater than 100 kilowatts must demonstrate that the source is eligible in accordance with RSA 362-F:4 and include all information pursuant to Puc 2505.02 (a) and Puc 2505.02 (c).
The application for sources greater than 100 kilowatts requires the following:
Puc 2506 requires that gross output from customer-sited sources be verified and reported by independent monitors. New Hampshire based owners must purchase a revenue quality meter to record the gross output and either retain the services of an independent monitor directly or, if participating in an aggregation, through an aggregator.
A list of independent monitors who are approved to monitor electrical and thermal production is available here.
A list of registered Aggregators of RECs is here. (BTW, aggregators of REC sare different than Electricity Aggregators.)
If you wish to apply for independent monitor or REC aggregator status pursuant to Puc 2505.10 and Puc 2507, respectively, please contact the Sustainable Energy Division at (603)271-2431 or send an email to RECApplicationGroup@puc.nh.gov.
