Specified Source Facilities
Registration by February 1
By February 1 of each year, EPEs must register their anticipated specified sources of power that they intend to claim in their June 1 Emissions Data Reports pursuant to section 95111(g)(1) of the Regulation for the Mandatory Reporting of Greenhouse Gas Emissions (MRR). The June 1 Emissions Data Reports cover emissions for the previous calendar year. All specified sources associated with imported power, exported power, or power used to claim an RPS adjustment, including any zero emission resources, must be registered by February 1, as well as new and existing anticipated specified sources for asset-controlling suppliers (ACS).
CARB will use this information to calculate an emission factor for each specified source. The emission factors will be published on the CARB website and made available to reporting entities in Workbook 1.
The link below provides the Specified Source Facilities Workbook. Completed Specified Source Facilities Workbooks must be emailed to email@example.com with the subject line: “Specified Source Registration – [company name and/or acronym]” by the February 1 deadline.

Registration by May 1
Pursuant to section 95111(f) of MRR, electric power entities (EPE) may register with CARB as an Asset Controlling Supplier (ACS). For entities applying to be an ACS, please submit your application to CARB by May 1 of the year preceding the data year for which the entity intends to be an ACS. Submission by this date, using the Asset Controlling Supplier application forms is needed to ensure sufficient time to process and review the application for the upcoming reporting year.
