    What is an SREC?

    • SREC stands for Solar Renewable Energy Certificate. 1,000 kWh = 1 SREC

    • SRECs behave like stock certificates and are traded on a market administered by the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER).

      Who buys them?

    • In MA, electric utilities need SRECs to meet solar production mandates placed upon them through the state’s Renewable Portfolio Standard.

      What is an SREC worth?
