Upon reaching Commercial Operation, please follow these steps:
Please review the Eligibility and Certification Guidelines
The project must first be registered and approved in NYGATS prior to applying for Tier 1 certification. To learn how, click the button below.
Submit your NYGATS Tier 1 Eligibility application in NYGATS. To learn how to do this, click the button below.
Notify your NYSERDA Project Manager that you have submitted your application. Make your Project Manager aware if your NYSERDA Agreement differs from your registrations, i.e. Nameplate change, etc.; as this may require a contract modification.
Once your NYGATS Eligibility application is reviewed and approved in NYGATS, you will be issued a Statement of Qualification (SoQ). The SoQ can be accessed when logged into the NYGATS website. Send a copy of the SoQ to your NYSERDA Project Manager.
Following the SoQ issuance, any applicable generation uploaded to NYGATS (by NYISO or other QIP) will be issued Tier-1 RECs.
Establish a forward transfer in NYGATS so that Tier-1 RECs will be automatically transferred to NYSERDA’s NYGATS account upon issue.
Review and Approve Invoice Payment instructions in preparation for the first invoicing period.
