Renewable Energy Resource Generating Facility Application for Certification

Below are links to the Filing Instructions and On-line Renewable Energy Resource (REN) Application to become a certified Ohio Renewable Energy Resource Generating Facility under the state’s Alternative Energy Portfolio Standard.  Start by reviewing the Filing Instructions, as they contain important information that will facilitate the application process.  A failure to follow the instructions may result in delays during the review process.

For applications received after December 31, 2012, credit will not be given for generation that occurred before the date of a facility's application for certification as an eligible Ohio renewable energy resource generating facility. For applications received after December 31, 2012, facility owners will be able to report generation from the date of application for Ohio's purposes, unless the facility is not yet online, in which case the facility owner can begin reporting from the in-service date.
