NYGATS is an online tracking system that manages the State’s voluntary market for tradable renewable energy certificates (RECs) and energy attribute certificates. The platform can be used to apply for Renewable Energy Standard (RES) certification under New York’s Clean Energy Standard through their earned qualification statements, designating the RECs created by a facility as eligible for RES Tier 1 compliance. Electric generation, imports, and consumption in New York State are continuously recorded using unique serial numbers. Registered users can trade, retire, or substantiate REC ownership to support energy compliance.


Owners of electricity generators, energy service companies, aggregators, green power marketers, and consumers can register for accounts on NYGATS. Further information on RES Tier 1 eligibility for generators is available here.

How to Apply

To register, visit the NYGATS Participant Account Holder Agreement, and follow the Account Registration Guide or the Project/ Facility Registration Guide. You may also Apply for Renewable Energy Standard Certification.
