What is an SREC, and how will I benefit from them? 

SREC is an acronym for Solar Renewable Energy Credit.

Each time your solar array produces 1MW (1,000 kWh) of electricity, you will earn one SREC.




You can then sell your SREC to a load serving entity (utility company) to either meet a state mandated Renewable Portfolio Standard or voluntary obligation. SRECs are currently(4/2010) selling for around $300 each in PA.   

Please understand, you are not selling the power produced rather the renewable "attributes" representing the positive environmental attributes associated with the MWh of renewable power delivered to the grid.

For a more detailed explanation, visit Clean Power Markets website for their explanation here.
