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.
In 2013-14, 34 renewable energy power stations were accredited, bringing the total to 413 since the commencement of the scheme, and the equivalent of 15,585,858 megawatt hours of large-scale generation certificates were validated—enough electricity to power over 2.4 million Australian homes for a year.
