Renewable Energy

Even though solar projects are no longer eligible for rebates, all projects must be registered under the SREC Registration Program (SRP) in order to earn Solar Renewable Energy Certificates (SRECs). SRECs represent all the clean energy benefits of electricity generated from a solar energy project. SRECs can be sold or traded separately from the power, providing owners a source of revenue to help offset the cost of installation. Learn more about SRECs and how they are generated.

Please be aware that to conform with the Clean Energy Act of 2018 signed on May 23, 2018, the Board has proposed rules to close the SREC Registration Program to new registrants upon the state solar electricity generation's attainment of 5.1% of retail electricity sales. A copy of the rule proposal is provided along with instructions for submitting comments.

Energy Efficiency First

Make sure your home or building is as energy efficient as possible before installing solar. Benefits include: improved comfort and safety, lower energy bills, less renewable capacity needed, and lower upfront cost to install renewable energy.  Businesses should take advantage of the free Benchmarking services provided by New Jersey's Clean Energy Program to discover where there are opportunities to save on energy before installing solar.

...then check with your utility

It is also a best practice when considering solar to check with your local Electric Distribution Company (EDC) about the capability of the electric distribution circuit serving your home or business. Many of the EDCs have maps on their website showing whether your local distribution circuit can handle additional solar interconnections. You can find contact information for the personnel at your EDC here.
