North Carolina accepts SREC registrations from facilities sited in all 50 states. This national acceptance of SREC registrations virtually guarantees that the local SREC program will be over-supplied as long as the market exists. Systems located in the Dominion Power utility territory of North Carolina may opt to be certified in the PA SREC market instead. For a period of time before January 2011, NC systems were eligible to apply to the DC SREC market. SRECTrade can assist in the registration and management of facilities located in North Carolina that are eligible for the PA market.

Source: EIA Report "Retail Sales of Electricity by State by Provider" updated 10/1/12. Projected SRECs Required utilizes the most recent EIA electricity data applying an average 1.5% growth rate per forecast year. RPS Solar Requirement is multiplied by forecast total electricity sales to arrive at Projected SRECs Required. Projected Capacity Required is based on a factor of 1,200 MWh generated per MW of installed capacity per year. Projected Capacity Required assumes the amount of capacity needed to be operational all year to meet that year's RPS requirements with only current vintage SRECs.
