On Wednesday, April 18th, SRECTrade announced Tier 1 and 2a results for the Delaware Pilot Procurement Program. The results can be found here on the Program site. Results for Tier 2b and 3 (systems between 250 and 2,000 kW) are not yet finalized.
For Tier 1 and 2a, during the random selection process, applications that represented PV systems with both Delaware parts and labor were automatically sorted above applications with just Delaware parts or just labor. Applications that did not qualify for either Delaware parts or labor were sorted last.
A fixed amount of SRECs were required to be purchased within each Tier. For example, Tier 1 required 2,972 SRECs per year. After sorting the systems, their cumulative SREC production was calculated. Applications were accepted down the sorted list until the 2,972nd SREC requirement was met. All other systems were not accepted into the Program. Overall the Pilot solicitation attracted the equivalent of 6,610 SRECs from Tier 1 qualified systems. As such, there were enough systems with Delaware parts and labor alone to meet the 2,972 SREC requirement for the Tier 1 solicitation.
The Delaware Pilot SREC Procurement Program is a partnership between Delmarva, the largest retail utility in Delaware and the Delaware Sustainable Energy Utility. The Program is designed to source all of Delmarva’s SRECs while guaranteeing eligible PV system owners a 20-year fixed price contracts for their SRECs.
