Your system is qualified for SREC II by submitting a Statement of Qualification (SQA) to the Department of Energy Resources (DOER). This application is typically submitted by an SREC aggregator. Once DOER approves the SQA, the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) will register the system in the online Production Tracking System (PTS).
The SMART Program officially launched on November 26, 2018, marking the last day on which solar facilities in Massachusetts could qualify under the SREC II Program.
Finding an Aggregator
Often a solar installer will be able to provide information and options for selecting an aggregator to help you manage the sale of your SRECs. DOER does not require customers to work with an aggregator under the SREC II program, but strongly recommends that all PV system owners consider working with one for the following reasons:
- It is difficult for an individual to sell a small number of SRECs to electricity providers who are required to purchase many thousands each year, making high volume purchases preferable.
- Aggregators qualify your system for the SREC II program with DOER, market and sell your SRECs, and manage necessary accounts on your behalf.
In return for these services, aggregators usually collect a small percentage fee of the final sale price of the SRECs. DOER has more information on participating aggregators on their website.
