ERT Issues Revised National REC Standard

November 2005 - Environmental Resources Trust (ERT) announced that it has released a revised Uniform National Standard for EcoPower renewable energy certificates (RECs). Some noteworthy revisions include: requiring EcoPower-certified RECs to be derived exclusively from new renewable energy sources (defined as beginning operation on or after January 1, 1998) starting in 2007, and adding certain solar water heating systems as eligible renewable energy sources. Other key additions are a newly revised certification statement and a checklist of environmental assets, which will be attached to EcoPower RECs and are designed to clarify what attributes are conveyed with any given REC purchase.
