What are SRECs?
If you’ve spent time looking into solar for your home or business, you’ve likely heard the term SRECs, which stands for Solar Renewable Energy Certificates or Solar Renewable Energy Credits. SRECs are solar incentives offered to homeowners and businesses who have a qualifying solar photovoltaic (PV) system. Utility companies then pay system owners for these certificates as a way for the utility to meet their state-issued Renewable Portfolio Standard.Read More
As more states begin to implement Renewable Energy Portfolio Standards (RPS) and establish carve-outs for wind and solar production, the question arises; which source of renewable energy production is best? Although both offer significant benefits, there are some key factors to consider before crowning one king.Read More
As consumer and market demands for clean energy sources and greater energy independence grows, many states are putting Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS) into place, which will reshape the energy landscape for years to come. So what is an RPS, and why should you care?
With solar energy only accounting for roughly two percent of the world’s electricity, it would be fair to assume that big utility companies have nothing to worry about. But you might be surprised to find out that isn’t the case.Read More
Making the switch to solar has always been a great opportunity for those looking for a reliable source of renewable energy and ways to save on their energy bill.
