The N.C. Utilities Commission has issued new forms for Renewable Energy Producers that will be required beginning May 1, 2018. These include:
(1) a new Certificate for Public Convenience and Necessity (“CPCN”) Application;
(2) a new Report of Proposed Construction for projects that do not require a CPCN;
(3) a Registration Statement which is required for any Renewable Energy Facility seeking Renewable Energy Credits and/or to participate in the new Competitive Procurement of Renewable Energy Program; and
These new forms are part of the Commission’s implementation of HB 589 and subsequent Commission Rules R8-64, 65 and 66. For more information of these forms and the rules, contact Karen Kemerait, Gray Styers or Deborah Ross.
