Review Registry Operating Documents

Register a Generator/Project
- After logging in, click on the ‘Projects’ tab on the left.
You will now see any Active generators in your Organization. For a full walkthrough of this page, please see our Projects Tab: An Introduction Article. (coming soon)
- Click on ‘Add New Project’ on the right side.
- Give your generator a name and click ‘Create Project’. You can change the name later in the process.
B. Once you access the screen your project is now in “Draft” mode. You can continue to update your project, however, make sure you save changes by clicking on the save project button. Once you have filled in all of the information required (indicated by an *), you will be able to submit the project registration to the system administrator for approval. If you are not sure what a field is asking, please consult the table at the bottom of this article. If you are still unsure after consulting the Operating Procedures please contact the M-RETS System Administrator.
The System Administrator will try and approve projects submitted with all the required information within seven days. If you need your project approved sooner, please email email@example.com and communicate your deadline.
The most common mistake is people not sure whether their generator is unit specific, it should be unless you are registering an aggregated generator.
