The Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER) sent out a general letter on April 12, 2013 clarifying the deadline for submitting an application to guarantee the 10 year/40 Quarter DOER Auction Opt-In Term. The new deadline is July 15, 2013. SRECTrade had originally communicated that the deadline was June 20, 2013 based on previously provided DOER information. SRECTrade will be be able to process EasyREC applications for the 10-year Opt-In Term if submitted by July 1, 2013. The earlier an application is submitted, the easier it will be to ensure that applications are processed in a timely fashion. We encourage early submission of applications.
Successful acceptance into the 10 year/40 Quarter DOER Auction Opt-In term begins upon the statement of qualification date. For example, if a project is accepted in Q3 2013, but not interconnected until Q1 2014, the project will forego 2 quarters (i.e. Q3 and Q4 2013) of DOER auction eligibility.
What is required to submit an application that qualifies for the 10 year Opt-In Term?
- Completed EasyREC application (without letter of interconnection)
- Must be submitted to SRECTrade before July 1, 2013
- Proof of applicable state and local permits is required for projects greater than or equal to 1 MW
