Under North Carolina’s Session Law 2007-397 (Senate Bill 3), electric power suppliers are required to meet a certain percentage of energy needs from renewable resources or energy efficiency. There are specific compliance requirements through the use of swine and poultry waste resources. This document is intended solely to provide general information to those developing waste-to-energy generation projects with the intention to sell energy, Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs), or both to a utility. This information sheet is not all encompassing. Generator owners are responsible for consulting with appropriate legal and energy professionals in determining all requirements for successful project development. Nothing in this Information sheet should be considered an offer or acceptance of terms or conditions for a Power Purchase Agreement (“PPA”) or an Interconnection Agreement.
