documentasset: Waste coal mine gas eligibility sheet

Complete the waste coal mine gas (WCMG) eligibility sheet in supplement to the 'Application for Accreditation of a Power Station', if waste coal mine gas is used as a fuel source in the power station.

Accreditation of a power station​

Generators of renewable electricity must be registered u​nder the Act and have their power stations accredited by the Regulator before they can create large-sale generation certificates. The accreditation process will establish if the power station is eligible to create large-scale generation certificates under the measure and, if applicable, establish a renewable energy baseline for each eligible power station. A power station must be accredited under the measure and generate renewable energy above its baseline before being eligible to create large-scale generation certificates.

This document provides information for applicants completing the 'accreditation of a power station' form.

Webinars

Participating in the Large-scale Renewable Energy Target webinar

As the popularity of commercial-size solar panel systems increases, more system owners may be attracted to the benefits of generating renewable electricity.

Depending on the size of the system, owners of commercial-sized installations may be eligible to participate in either the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme or the Large-scale Renewable Energy Target. All businesses who are considering installing solar systems are encouraged to research which scheme under the Renewable Energy Target is right for them.

This webinar discusses options under both schemes with a particular focus on requirements for the Large-scale Renewable Energy Target. 

Please see Webinar - Participating in​ the Large-scale Renewable Energy Target to view a recording of the webinar and to download a copy of the presentation slides.​​
