Power Purchase Agreement(PPA)



  • Base Rebate: $0.40 per watt (DC) for up to a 5 kW system

  • Maximum $4,000
  • 15% State Tax Credit (up to $1000)
  • 30% Federal Tax Credit
  • SREC’s (Solar Renewable Energy Certificates)

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?
