Currently, Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emission reductions trade anywhere from $2 ~
$35 per metric ton. The price varies depending on the country they are traded in, the
type of taxes or incentives available, local cost to achieve emissions reductions,
volume and contract length of Emission Reduction Credits (ERC's) delivered etc.
ERC's from RE systems often include, CH4 (Methane),
N2O (Nitrous Oxide),
and other gases. For the purpose of this calculator we are only using CO2.

Use this calculator to get a sense of your system ERC revenue potential. In this illustration,
1 kWh is equal to 1 kg of CO2, other gases are ignored, and you select
per ton values. Actual emission rates will vary per local power pool, and per ton value will be
determined by supply and demand at time of sale.
The calculator factors in ICBE standard insurance, discount, and account fees.
