Legislation to resuscitate the New Jersey SREC market failed to make it to a vote in the last legislative session on Monday, January 9. The bill (2-2371) would have modified the NJ renewable portfolio standard, increasing the amount of electricity that must be derived from solar. If passed, this bill would have increased SREC values and provided a boost to the NJ solar industry.

Although the legislative session has ended, there is hope that the bill will be introduced at the beginning of the next session. Hope also lies with Governor Christie’s Energy Master Plan, which was introduced at the end of 2011. Please follow our blog for an upcoming analysis of Governor Christie’s Energy Master Plan and the possible effects it could have on SREC markets.

Sol Systems currently offers three types of SREC agreements for New Jersey solar systems: Sol Brokerage, Sol Upfront, and Sol Annuity. Please email info@solsystemscompany.com or contact your solar installer for more specific pricing.
