Renewable energy can come from a wide range of sources included Solar PV, Wind, Hydro and many different bio and waste energy fuels.

Large Generation Certificates (LGCs) are usually created annually for the amount of MWhs of renewable energy generation that occurred in the previous calendar year.  LGCs differ from Small-scale Certificates in that they are created in arrears for actual energy generation.

Wattly provides a wide range of consulting services around renewable energy and can register the “Power Station” with the Clean Energy Regulator on behalf of the system owner to simplify LCG creation and sale.

Access funding under the Federal Renewable Energy Target Large Generation Certificates. One large-scale generation certificate (LGC) is equal to 1MWh of renewable electricity.  LGCs have a vintage based on the year of generation. For example, CAL17 LGC means the energy was generated in 2017 calendar year.
