This Methodology Determination (method) provides the rules for crediting the emissions reductions achieved by reducing the energy consumption of fans in commercial buildings. Emissions reductions can be credited under the Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF) for emissions reduced by high efficiency fan installations and upgrades to refrigeration and ventilation systems.
