The sale of RECs had increased by about 62% to 49.56 lakh last fiscal as compared to 30.64 lakh in 2014-15. The Central Electricity Regulatory Commission has approved two power exchanges - Indian Energy Exchange (IEX) and Power Exchange India (PXIL) to hold auction of RECs on the last Wednesday of every month.
