Monday, February 1, 2016, the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER) provided an update on the current status of the Solar Carve-Out II program (SREC-II). At the time the Small Generation Unit set aside was formally announced in early January 2016, there was roughly 371.1 MW of capacity left under the SREC-II program – 120 MW for Small Generation Units under 25 kW, and roughly 250 MW for projects greater than 25 kW.
Since this announcement, a significant amount of capacity has been filled in both the small and large generation unit categories. The recent DOER update indicated that 94.6 MW of capacity still remains to be filled for Small Generation Units, while only 22.8 MW of capacity is still remaining for larger projects.
In the DOER’s report, they acknowledged that 2.8 MW of applications are “Under Review” for Small Generation Units, while 119.5 MW of applications are “Under Review” for larger projects. This status indicates that these applications have not received full approval from the DOER and are still in their processing queue. The summary made available by the DOER is shown below:
For further information, the DOER provides the full details on capacity in SREC-II under the “Qualified Projects” section of their SREC-II current status webpage.
