New Program Supports Utility-Scale Energy Generation​

In 2020, OAQDA began administering a new program that incentivizes eligible facilities providing clean air generation as prescribed in Amended Substitute House Bill 6. It was recently modified by Amended Substitute House Bill 128 in March 2021.

As required by the legislation, OAQDA issues credits to renewable energy resources for each megawatt-hour of electricity generated in the facilities. Qualifying electric generating facilities must be interconnected with the transmission grid controlled by PJM Interconnection, LLC and report their generation in the Generation Attribute Tracking System (GATS). The program will run through 2028.
