If you are an aggregator, you either own multiple renewable energy sources or you have an agreement with the owner to manage these sources on their behalf. As an aggregator, you can capture value from these renewable sources through PJM-EIS' Generation Attribute Tracking System (GATS), a system which helps resource owners earn revenue through a unique market.

GATS enables aggregators to convert power into a tradeable renewable energy certificate (REC). A REC is created for every megawatt-hour of electricity generated. Anyone who creates an account and registers a generator with at least one state within the area PJM serves, can sell RECs.

To participate in GATS, aggregators need to have a signed Schedule A PDF agreement authorizing them with rights to register and maintain the system. States buy RECs to meet their renewable energy goals as shown in the Renewable Portfolio Standards in each state.
