Don't Miss out on SRECs in Massachusetts

Posted on March 18, 2013

The New England Patriots are far from economically insolvent as a team, yet the Massachusetts’ solar industry still made more money installing solar panels than the team in 2012.  In fact, Massachusetts was named the sixth top solar state for 2012 by the Solar Energy Industry Association with 128.9 megawatts installed - enough energy to power 32,000 homes.

As a result of increased MA solar demand, new systems brought online after October 28th of this year will only be able to sell their Solar Renewable Energy Certificates (SREC) for 8 years instead of 10.  This means that if you sign up to get solar installed after October 18th of this year you’re losing out this years rebate. The upfront rebates are not going to be renewed for next year.
