Announcement View: 1385 - The Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER) SREC Auction

The Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER) is a state agency whose mandate is to promote policies and programs to ensure that Massachusetts' citizens have adequate, diverse, energy supplies, at a reasonable cost, with a minimal impact on the environment. To meet this objective, DOER pursues a number of policy and program initiatives designed to increase the efficiency of electricity, gas, and oil end-uses; to encourage investment in energy conservation, renewable energy, demand response and load management programs, and; to enhance competition and planning in the electric and gas industries.

The RPS Solar Carve-Out is a market-based incentive program to support residential, commercial, public, and non-profit entities in developing 400 MW of solar photovoltaic (PV) across the Commonwealth. As part of the Solar Carve-Out of the Renewable Energy Portfolio Standard (RPS) Class I program (per regulation 225 CMR 14.00), DOER has established an Auction Account on the NEPOOL Generation Information System (NEPOOL GIS). Solar Renewable Energy Certificates (SRECs) that have been generated within the Auction Opt-In Term prescribed to projects by DOER at the time of their qualification for the Solar RPS Carve-Out are eligible to be deposited into the Auction Account. The Auction Account is open to accept deposits of eligible, unsold SRECs during the final 31 days of each Compliance Year’s 4th quarter trading period (May 16-June 15). In the event that SRECs are deposited into the Auction Account, DOER will hold the Solar Credit Clearinghouse Auction to clear these deposited SRECs.
