Western Renewable Energy Generation Information System (WREGIS)


An independent, renewable energy tracking system for the region covered by the Western Electricity Coordinating Council (WECC). WREGIS tracks renewable energy generation from units that register in the system using verifiable data and creates renewable energy certificates (RECs) for this generation. WREGIS Certificates can be used to verify compliance with state and provincial regulatory requirements (Renewable Portfolio Standards, for example) and in voluntary market programs.

WREGIS is an accounting system designed to issue, register and track renewable energy certificates (RECs) for use in verification of compliance with state and provincial regulatory and voluntary market programs. The system can be accessed by both registered account holders and public users, but the functionality available to registered users is much higher than that available to the public. WREGIS account holders can manage their individual REC portfolios in one account; the same account will have numerous available sub-accounts into which the portfolios can be organized.
