The Delaware SREC Pilot Procurement Program reached a milestone today. The solicitation period (window for submitting applications) closed today at 5 pm Eastern Standard Time for Tier 1 and 2 photovoltaic systems (PV systems <250 kW DC). SRECTrade is contracted by the Delaware SEU to run the Pilot Procurement solicitation. Successful applicants will be guaranteed 20-year contracts for their SRECs, but not all applicants will be successful because of capacity limitations set in place by the state. The application rules and contract values vary depending on system size. The application form and guidelines are provided on the SRECDelaware website.
Tiers 2B and 3 are still open until 5:00 EST on Friday, April 13th. Any facilities that did not bid in Tier 1 or 2A may still bid in Tier 2B regardless of size, however they have to meet the requirements of a Tier 2B system and must submit a bid price. Any system that bid in Tier 1 or 2A may not bid in Tier 2B and any systems that do so will have both bids disqualified.
All applications for Tier 1 and 2A must have been received by 5:00 pm Eastern Standard Time on Friday and all bid deposits must have been initiated prior to that time. SRECTrade will continue to update the status of individual applications status as bid deposits are received on Monday. We will contact any facilities requiring minor corrections during the week of April 9-13.
