It depends on how much renewable power is produced. Net-zero projects can automatically earn this credit as long as the RECs or offsets generated from the onsite systems are not sold or traded. Watch out for PPAs or ESCO agreements where RECs are often retained by the provider.
Projects with some renewable energy should subtract the annual emissions avoided through renewable power from the project’s total predicted annual emissions, before purchasing green power or offsets. The avoided emissions should be calculated by using the emissions factor for the type of fuel that’s being replaced by renewables. This means that onsite renewables don’t contribute directly to this credit, but having them does make it much easier to reach the thresholds.
