If you haven’t heard already, the Massachusetts Department of Energy and Resources (DOER)  has officially announced the end of the ever so popular Solar Renewable Energy Certificate (SREC) Program.  Yes, what a shame!

The MA SREC program has been touted for years as one of the best, if not the best solar incentive program in the country.  Basically, when you install a solar system on your home, business or nonprofit, you get paid for the production of your solar power plant.  Yes, PAID.

How SRECs Work: For every 1,000 kWh produced, you get 1 SREC. An average single family home producing 8,000 kWh a year of solar power, would get 8 SRECs, which is equal to over $1,500 a year.
