Massachusetts DOER Announces SREC I and SREC II Auction Totals and Preliminary 2020 Minimum Standards

Posted July 15th, 2019 by SRECTrade.

On July 15, 2019, the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER) announced final SRECs available for auction in this year’s Annual Solar Credit Clearinghouse Auction (SCCA) I and II, as well as the preliminary 2020 Minimum Standards for the SREC I and II programs.

The DOER confirmed that 632 certificates have been deposited for the SREC I auction, and 4,626 certificates have been deposited for the SREC II auction.

The DOER estimates a 2020 SREC I Minimum Standard of 1.6449% (764,036 MWh) for load executed under contract on or after June 28, 2013. This Minimum Standard applies regardless of which round the auction clears. Load served under contracts executed prior to June 28, 2013 will follow a Minimum Standard of 1.0071%.

The DOER estimates a 2020 SREC II Minimum Standard of 2.2485% (1,044,390 MWh) for load served under contracts executed between April 25, 2014 and May 8, 2016, and 3.8088% (1,769,130 MWh) for load served under contracts executed on or after May 8, 2016. This will only apply if the auction clears in the first two rounds. If the auction clears in the third round, the Minimum Standard will be 2.2585% for load served under contracts executed between April 25, 2014 and May 8, 2016 and 3.8188% for load
served under contracts executed on or after May 8, 2016.
