Qualifying for the Ohio SREC market

Posted December 16th, 2009 by SRECTrade.

This is the first year that the Ohio RPS has come into effect and we expect Ohio to be one of the best market for SRECs over the next few years.  With an established SACP starting at $450 this year, a large electricity market, and a growing solar requirement, we expect Ohio to surpass Pennsylvania and many of the other SREC states in volume.  For that reason, we recommend registering in Ohio if you are from Ohio and any of its neighboring states: Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Kentucky, Indiana and Michigan.  For Pennsylvania residents, the early months of the Pennsylvania auctions brought a price of $290-$300, but your PA SRECs could be worth up to 30% more in the Ohio market.  To find out more about the Ohio SREC program follow this link.

Registering in Ohio

Utilities in Ohio are allowed to procure 50% of the SRECs from out of state facilities. However, these states must be contiguous with Ohio (PA, MI, IN, KY, WV). Instructions and forms required for Ohio certification can be found here: Application for Certification as an Ohio Renewable Energy Resource Generating Facility

Pennsylvania Detailed Process for Obtaining State Certification Number

Posted July 28th, 2009 by SRECTrade.

SRECTrade can now register your solar facility in Pennsylvania. If you are an EasyREC customer, please download the PA SREC registration forms.  Note: You want to do this as quickly as possible if this is the first state you are registering in because the Pennsylvania program manager was recently instructed by the PUC to count generation from the date of application (not from the time the system is installed or interconnected).  This only applies to solar owners who have NOT registered previously in another state.  If you registered previously in another state, SRECs that are certified in that state will also have the PA certification applied to them.

For all other customers, hopefully this post will clear up any confusion with the process.
