On January 1, 2013 the Ohio Public Utilities Commission (PUCO) stopped allowing SRECs to be created from power generated prior to the date of application for state certification. The official reference to this rule change can be found on the OH PUCO website.
What this means:
- Starting in January 2013 SRECs are created from the date of application (this is in line with the rules for the PA SREC market).
- SRECTrade applications should be submitted as soon as possible for all systems or some SREC opportunity will be lost.
- Online monitoring software cannot be used to create SRECs retroactive to the date of interconnection.
