REC-29: Are there limitations on the solar RECs that are eligible for the REC RFP? In particular are there limitations with respect to location?

Please consult the Ameren Master REC Agreement posted to the Renewable Energy Resources Section of the procurement website for full details of conditions related to the RECs that can be provided to Ameren under the REC RFP. For bidding in the REC RFP, these requirements include, but are not limited to, RECs that: (i) are generated by photovoltaic cells and panels as identified in the Act as Renewable Energy Resources; (ii) are associated with generation taking place between January 1, 2015 and May 31, 2016; (iii) are “Standard RECs”, i.e., RECs that include all environmental attributes represented by renewable electricity generation associated with the RECs; (iv) are tracked in one of PJM Environmental Information System (“EIS”)’s Generation Attribute Tracking System (“GATS”), the Midwest Renewable Energy Tracking System (“M-RETS”), or the North American Renewable Registry (“NARR”).

There is no additional restriction on location but please note that the evaluation gives preference to RECs produced by a solar photovoltaic renewable energy resource located within Illinois or within a state adjoining Illinois. States adjoining Illinois are Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri, Kentucky, Indiana, or Michigan.
