On November 14, 2013, the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER) posted the official, final project eligibility extension guidelines for SREC-I (current SREC program) qualified projects >100 kW in size.*
The official extension guidelines can be found here and the DOER’s email announcing the guidelines can be found here. Without an extension, the deadline for installing SREC-I eligible projects >100 kW is December 31, 2013. Projects are eligible for an extension if they can prove they have incurred 50% of the cost to construct by 12/31/2013. Extension forms must be filed with the DOER no later than January 13, 2014.
*Projects less than or equal to 100 kW DC in capacity do not need to file for an extension. These projects are eligible for SREC-I provided that they can prove interconnection and have submitted complete program Statement of Qualification Applications (SQA) by the day before the effective date of the start of the SREC-II program. It is expected that the effective date of SREC-II will likely occur sometime on or before the end of Q1 2014.
