The following information will guide you through the steps necessary to register a Project in your M-RETS® organization account.  The M-RETS® Administrator is available to assist you throughout the registration process. Please call 651-789-3324, or email at [email protected].

Step 1: Review Registry Operating Documents

The Registry Operating Procedures detail the requirements and definitions of different types projects. The Operating Procedures are available here. If you are not yet an M-RETS® account Holder, visit our account registration page here.

Step 2: Register Asset

A. Log in to your account using the Registry Login and access the Projects screen

B. Once you access the screen your project is now in "Draft" mode. You can continue to update your project, however, make sure you save changes by clicking on the save project button. Once you have filled in all of the information required (indicated by an *), you will be able to submit the project registration to the system administrator for approval. 

The System Administrator will try and approve projects submitted with all the required information within seven days. If you need your project approved sooner, please email [email protected] and communicate your deadline. 

If you are not sure what a field is asking, please consult the M-RETS Operating Procedures available at : https://www.mrets.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/Operating-Procedures-1-1.pdf. If you are still unsure after consulting the Operating Procedures please contact the M-RETS System Administrator. 

The most common mistake is people not sure whether their generator is unit specific, it should be unless you are registering an aggregated generator. 

C. Uploading Supporting Documents

  1. You can find required documentation by the link HERE
  • Schedule A – for projects registered by a Designated Responsible Party
  • Documents that verify ownership and Nameplate Capacity.  (Interconnection Agreement, Power Purchase Agreements, Contracts, Engineering Reports)
  • MN Air Permits – For MN Eligible Multi-fuel Projects
  • Multi-fuel Report (OP Appendix B-3)
  • State Certification documents (OH, WI)

Use the Documents tab interface to upload documents. By clicking the blue "Upload Document" a local search function can be accessed.

4. Submission

The M-RETS Administrator will then be notified of the New Asset Registration via email. Your project will then be put into Pending mode until the System Administrator Approves the project or asks for further information. 

Step 3: Asset Review

The Registry Administrator will review the Asset registration. If the Asset application is complete and approved, an email notification describing account approval will be sent to the Account Holder.  If materials are incomplete or additional information is required, the Administrator will notify the Account Manager.

Step 4: Certificate Issuance

Certificates can be issued as often as once a month if the metering data has been communicated to the Registry. Metering data must come from a Qualified Reporting Entity unless the Generating Unit is less than 150kW in capacity in which case it can be self reported. An invoice will be issued for each month where certificates are issued.
