SRECTrade, Inc. is an online brokerage platform for Solar Renewable Energy Certificates (SRECs), a key component of making solar energy affordable in a growing number of U.S. states.

SRECTrade helps customers buy and sell SRECs and provides robust software to facilitate the transaction and management of SRECs.
