Emission Reduction Credit (ERC) Banking Program - Forms and Instructions

As a participant of the ERC Banking Program, you must utilize these required forms when submitting ERC generation, transfer or use requests to Ohio EPA Division of Air Pollution Control (DAPC). Submit individual forms for each facility requesting to generate, transfer or use ERCs. Complete and submit forms to the Ohio EPA ERC Banking Program coordinator. Only written notice, rather than a form, is required if you are requesting to withdrawal ERCs from the ERC Banking Program.

The forms and instructions are currently in draft format and will be finalized in the near future. Ohio EPA will accept the draft version of the below forms.

 As a precautionary response to COVID-19, Ohio EPA is currently operating with most staff working remotely. If you are working with our staff on a current project and you know the name of the employee you are working with, email them at firstname.lastname@epa.ohio.gov or call them directly. The Agency website has contact information for every district, division, and office. In order to reach us, please contact Ohio EPA’s main phone line at (614) 644-3020 or the main line for the division or office you are trying to reach.

After March 23, our district offices and Central Office will be temporarily closed and will have increasingly limited ability to receive deliveries, plans, etc. All entities are encouraged to submit plans, permit applications, etc., electronically where there are existing avenues to do so, such as the eBusiness Center (eBiz). Please refer to the list of available services on the main eBiz webpage. We encourage you to make use of all that apply, even if you have not used eBiz in the past. Plans under 25 MB can be emailed. For large plans over 25 MB, entities should work with the reviewer/division to upload via LiquidFiles. Directions for submitting docs via LiquidFiles is available on YouTube. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you in advance for your understanding.
