About the Registry
M-RETS® creates a renewable energy certificate for every MWh of renewable energy produced in the region, tracks the life cycle of each renewable certificate created, and ensures against any double-counting or double-use of each certificate. To learn more see Why Use M-RETS®.
M-RETS® is an easy to use, web-based system that creates, verifies, manages and enables trading for Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs). The system provides a full suite of capabilities to create unique certificates, track serial numbers, track certificates in company accounts, enable transfers and transactions, track certificate retirement, and enable compliance reporting with a full audit trail.
The best way is to reach out to the the Executive Director or contact the respective State Agencies and/or commissions in each participating State/Province and review their eligibility requirements. Information on each State/Provincial programs and their respective contacts can be found under the Useful Links page.
M-RETS® permits RECs to be exported to MIRECS, NAR and NC-RETS. A full list of tracking systems that facilitate inter-registry transfers can be accessed here. The procedure to export RECs is available in Section 4.6.5 of the M-RETS® Operating Procedures. If you have questions about exporting RECs from your account, please contact the M-RETS Administrator – Sean Darling: systemadmin(at)mrets.org
