RECs Annex

The EEI Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) Annex to the EEI Master Power Purchase and Sale Agreement is designed to enable RECs trading between EEI counterparties. This annex has been in development for several years, as the subcommittee studied and responded to market developments and the needs of EEI Master Agreement party RECs market participants. It has been streamlined to remove certain features that market developments have not required, while adding and enhancing other features in order to maximize utility for potential users.​​​

Collateral Annex

The Collateral Annex sets forth detailed procedures under which each party will provide security under Article 8 of the Master Contract. Specifically, the Collateral Annex describes the conditions under which a party will be required to Transfer Performance Assurance in the form of Cash, a Letter of Credit or other property, as well as the conditions under which a party administers and releases Performance Assurance. When the Collateral Annex is used, it supercedes and replaces Sections 8.1(c), 8.2(c) and 8.3 of the Master Contract. The Collateral Annex has its own Cover Sheet to make various elections, including the Collateral Threshold, Independent Amount, Minimum Transfer Amount, and Rounding Amount that apply to the counterparties to the Master Contract.
