2 Objectives of Presentation Background description of PENNVEST’s clearinghouse services Introduce rulebook Mock auction description Announce upcoming dates and initiation process of PENNVEST’s clearinghouse services 2

3 Overview PENNVEST will provide stakeholders the option to use its “clearinghouse” services to participate in the state’s nutrient credit market PENNVEST has spent the past year, through iteration and multiple outreach sessions with stakeholders, designing the structure of the clearinghouse Goal of PENNVEST services: – Reduce transaction costs and risks to market participants – Be customizable to reflect different needs – Require risk-mitigating assurances so that transaction risk to both PENNVEST and market participants is reduced 3

4 Basic Clearinghouse Functions PENNVEST will host the following types of market events, with the schedule and frequency based on stakeholder interest: – Provide auctions and clearing for multi-year forward contracts – Provide auctions and clearing for “spot” contracts at the end of the compliance year – Clearing of bilaterally negotiated prices and credit quantities between self-identified counterparties – Option contracts to accommodate property developers’ multi-step regulatory approval process 4

5 Rulebook PENNVEST’s services and the process for entering into contracts are described further in a rulebook available on PENNVEST’s website The rulebook is a formal description of how PENNVEST’s clearinghouse will operate, which is consistent with descriptions presented over previous year, and describes the process by which participants can enter into contracts with PENNVEST PENNVEST is accepting comments on the rulebook 5

6 Mock Auction PENNVEST and CCX will be administering a mock nutrient credit auction Friday, August 27, 2010 to: – Engage in outreach to potential market participants – Become accustomed with the process of administering auctions PENNVEST has created a document that provides background detail about the mock auction and is available on PENNVEST’s website 6
