In part 1, the Center for Resource Solutions explained what the  U.S. EPA's Clean Power Plan says about emission rate credits. In part 2, it explores how the creation and trading of emission rate credits, or ERCs, may affect renewable energy credit, or REC, markets. How do ERCs interact with RECs and renewable energy markets? Only time will tell, though it will largely depend on how states set up their CPP state plans and specify (if at all) the relationship between REC and ERC ownership. There are, however, at least six things that we can say, based solely on the final rule.
