REC - Renewable Energy Certificate

REC & How it works?

  • Renewable Energy Certificate (REC) mechanism is a market based instrument to promote renewable energy and facilitate compliance of Renewable purchase obligations (RPO)
  • Places an obligation on electricity supply companies to produce/consume a specified fraction of their electricity consumption from renewable energy sources
  • REC mechanism is aimed at addressing the mismatch between availability of RE resources in state and the requirement of the obligated entities to meet the renewable purchase obligation (RPO)
  • Solar RECs are issued to eligible entities for generation of electricity based on solar as renewable energy source.
  • REC would be exchanged only in the CERC approved power exchanges IEX and PXIL
  • Floor Price varies between Rs 9.30 to Rs. 13.40 per unit
