2017 DE SREC Procurement Results

Posted July 14th, 2017 by SRECTrade.

On July 12, SRECDelaware announced the results of the Delaware 2017 SREC Procurement auction. Delaware’s SREC Procurement Program allows for facilities to secure 20-year SREC contracts with Delmarva Power through a competitive bidding process. Delmarva holds auctions every spring separately from the open-market SREC transactions that occur on an ongoing basis.

SREC contracts awarded through the procurement are allocated according to different capacity-based “tiers”. In previous years, the auction consisted of three tiers for new systems and two tiers for existing systems. This year’s SREC procurement introduced two new tiers, representing systems over 2 MW for new and existing systems, respectively.

In this year’s Spring Procurement, Delmarva Power purchased 20,000 SRECs at the following price levels:



1. The highest successful bid price at each respective tier.
2. The lowest successful bid price at each respective tier.
3. The weighted average bid price of all successful bids at each respective tier.

As a whole, the 2017 Procurement was oversubscribed, as an excess of bids were submitted to the auction due to oversupply of solar in the market. In effect, the overall weighted average bid price dropped to $21.26 from last year’s $66.56.

We expect oversupply to remain an issue in the DE SREC market and with it, suppressed SREC values in the DE open-market, pending a major policy change in the state. As always, our team will continue to work closely with Delmarva Power and policymakers to ensure our clients get the best value for their SRECs in the open market.

2013 SREC Procurement Auction News Release

Wilmington, DE, March 8, 2013 –The Delaware Sustainable Energy Utility (SEU), announced today the dates for the commencement of its 2nd Solar Renewable Energy Credit Procurement auction. The application process will commence on March 25th and accept applications through April 12th. The procurement program creates a market in Delaware for the buying and selling of Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs). SRECs allow generators of renewable energy to sell credits to Delmarva Power for its compliance with state standards for renewable energy development. These credits can accrue automatically to solar panel owners and often can be traded and sold like stocks on the stock market.

This second procurement auction follows last year’s successful pilot program. The program is designed to bring price stability through 20-year SREC contracts offered by the SEU in a manner that helps to drive down long-term energy costs for everyone. The procurement program for 2013 is being improved based on an evaluation and recommendations by the Delaware Renewable Energy Task Force which made recommendations to the Public Service Commission as part of Delmarva Power’s petition to enter into an agreement with the SEU to offer the auction. On January 22, 2013, the Public Service Commission approved moving forward with the second auction. One important change approved by the Public Service Commission is an expansion of the program to enable owners of solar systems installed prior to December 30, 2010 to participate.

Senator Harris B. McDowell III, Chairman of the SEU stated, “Building on our very successful Solar Pilot Program in 2012 where 9800 SREC’s were procured and 91 new solar projects were incented this second auction is the latest step taken by the SEU to create jobs and promote renewable energy. The SEU is fulfilling its role as the one-stop shop for clean energy needs of all our citizens and businesses. The SREC Market will assure continued job creation in Delaware while cost-effectively increasing energy security, reducing our carbon footprint, and lowering the state’s pollution.” The Senator continued, “The unique capabilities of the SEU make the new solar auction possible. It can independently and transparently provide a statewide platform for buying and selling SRECs at the lowest price, and greatly reduce the long-term social, economic and environmental risks that future generations would otherwise face.”

SRECTrade, Inc. was selected by competitive bid to act as Procurement Agent for the program in 2012 and again for 2013. Mr. Kevin Quilliam, President of SRECTrade said, “SRECTrade started the first public, transparent market place for Delaware SRECs in 2009, and we look forward to continuing to support the evolution of the Delaware marketplace as the SREC Procurement Program is implemented. SRECTrade will use its leading SREC management platform and apply its market expertise in the execution of the program.”
