Massachusetts’ Department of Energy Resources (DOER) will be holding a public Solar Stakeholder Meeting this Friday, June 7, 2013 from 10:00am to noon in the Gardner Auditorium of the State House in Boston, where they will present a draft policy proposal for the next solar program. The DOER will also shed some light on how it plans to proceed with the accelerated amount of Statement of Qualification Applications (SQA) it has received as part of the 400 MW program.
The DOER followed sent an email on Monday, June 3, 2013 stating that a list of projects that have sought qualification for the 400 MW program is now posted on the DOER’s website. This list includes a breakdown of qualified projects or administratively complete applications that are considered to be within the 400 MW cap program, and a queue of projects that are beyond the 400 MW cap. A number of projects that are well into construction, financing, and other economic commitments may be at risk of not qualifying for the first program. With this in mind, the DOER intends to maintain a healthy and confident solar market as the transition to the next (post-400 MW) policy program begins. In order to do so, the DOER plans to file an emergency regulation sometime this month. More details will be provided on this emergency regulation at the Stakeholder Meeting on Friday.
