Adjustment to RPS Class III Requirement

Pursuant to statute, the Department of Energy is authorized to adjust Class III RPS requirements as necessary and consistent with the purposes of RSA 362-F. The Department will consider whether an adjustment should be made to the Class III requirement for 2021.

The Department of Energy has determined to evaluate whether a sufficient supply of Class III (Existing Biomass/Methane) renewable energy certificates (RECs) will be available for New Hampshire electricity providers to comply with New Hampshire’s Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) requirements under RSA chapter 362-F for the 2021 compliance year. The Department will consider whether an adjustment should be made to the Class III requirement for 2021. If the Department makes no change, the Class III RPS requirement will be 8.0 percent of retail sales for 2021
