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.
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.
