February 2010 - The Missouri Public Service Commission and the North Carolina Utilities Commission have both selected providers for renewable energy certificates (REC) tracking systems. Both systems will be managed by APX Inc.
The North Carolina Renewable Energy Tracking System (NC-RETS) will track utility compliance with North Carolina's renewable energy goals, including requirements for energy derived from swine and poultry waste. NC-RETS will also track energy efficiency used to meet North Carolina's requirements.
Missouri will use the North American Renewables Registry (NARR) to manage compliance with the Missouri Renewable Energy Standard. NARR is an existing registry open to states and markets not covered by other tracking systems. Including NC-RETS and NARR, there are currently nine REC tracking systems in the United States.
