Emission Reduction Credit (ERC) Banking System

Unverified ERCs

As an ERC Banking Program participant, un-verified ERCs deposited into the ERC Bank may not be transferred until the ERCs are verified by Ohio EPA. If you wish to engage in an un-verified ERCs transfer, the current owner must request in writing to withdrawal the un-verified ERCs from the ERC Banking System. 

Disclaimer: Ohio EPA cannot make any guarantee to the validity of unverified ERCs identified in the ERC Banking System. All parties should understand the risk involved in transactions and subsequent requests for use of un-verified ERCs.

 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.
