Individuals and business who wish to invest in, or generate renewable energy as a power station may apply for accreditation to participate under the Large-scale Renewable Energy Target.
Accredited power stations are entitled to create large-scale generation certificates for all eligible electricity generated above a regulated level, called the baseline. Once created, large-scale generation certificates can be sold to offset the cost of generating renewable energy, or transferred to other entities that are required to meet liability obligations under the scheme.
There are over 500 accredited renewable energy power stations in Australia with around 40 new accreditations each year. Each year these power stations generate enough electricity to power around 2.4 million average Australian households.
A list of accredited power stations is available on the register of power stations and through the REC Registry.
