Non-NYISO Project registrations are for generators that are not settled in the NYISO Control Area, typically, smaller, Distributed Generation projects. Generally, NYGATS facilitates two types of project registrations: Operational and Provisional
- Operational Project - type of project registration for generators that are currently operational
- Provisional Project - type of project for generators that are not yet operational
Both Operational and Provisional Projects can be submitted to NYSERDA to be certified for the NY RES. Instructions for registering Provisional Projects can be found here.
There are multiple types of Operational Projects:
This article focuses on the registration of Operational Non-NYISO Projects. The Operational Non-NYISO Project registration can be initiated by:
- Log into NYGATS by navigating to the NYGATS Informational Site: http://www.nyserda.ny.gov/nygats and select the ‘Sign in for Existing Users’ button located on the right-hand side of the screen. Selecting the ‘Sign in for Existing Users’ button will redirect the user to the NYGATS Account Login Screen where the user can enter their Username and Password to access their account.
- Generators that are currently operational and that are not settled in NYISO can be registered by selecting the ‘Register New Operational Project’ link located in the Project Management module. If the project is not yet operational see the instructions for registering Provisional Projects.
After selecting the ‘Register New Operational Project’ link located in the Project Management module, select the project type = Generating Unit Project. Instructions for Aggregated Projects can be found here.

- Each project will designate a Qualified Independent Party (QIP) in the Qualified Independent Party Access section of the Project registration screens (page 2). The QIP should be an entity that is not affiliated with the Generator Owner and who approved to report generation data. Eligible QIPs include, but are not limited to, the interconnecting utility, scheduling coordinator, independent third-party meter reader, or Generator Agent. The designated QIP should provide a QIP ID that is specific for the project. A QIP ID is a unique identifier assigned to the project by the QIP which will link the project to the QIP Account.
NOTE: Projects that qualify as Self Reporting (Operating Rule 5.8) will select Self Reporting as the QIP.
- Once all of the registration fields are completed (3 pages in total) the Operational Project can be submitted. Once submitted, it will be set to a status of Pending, and project documents can now be loaded.
- The following documentation should be uploaded to the Documents/Attestations column on the Project Management Module:
- Designation of Responsible Party – authorize right to register the project if the project is not owned by the Account Holder registering the project
- Documentation to verify Nameplate Capacity, In-Service Date/Commercial Operation Date and Fuel Type (e.g. Interconnection Agreement, Contract, PPA, ect)
- EIA 860 documentation (if applicable)
- After a submitted project has been approved by the NYGATS Administrator, the Annual Review date will be displayed for the project. This date will trigger an annual notification to the account holder to update the registration for any changes.
