Policy: California Senate Bill 1298 and amendments
Description: In September of 2007, the California Resources Board amended its Distributed Generation Certification Regulation (Senate Bill 1298), which specifies the emissions regulations that particular generators are subject to. Applicable to distributed generation units manufactured after January 1, 2003, the amended rule indicates that CHP units that meet a minimum efficiency requirement may take a thermal credit against their emissions, equivalent to 1 MWh per 3.4 million Btus.
