The Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER) announces plans for the next generation solar incentive program and transition to the new program from the the current SREC 2 program. The following is information from DOER:
Final Proposal for Next Generation Incentive Program
DOER would like to invite stakeholders to attend a briefing on January 31, 2017 at which the final proposal for the design of the next generation incentive program will be presented to the public. This proposal will be used by DOER as the framework for the regulation to implement the program, which DOER plans to file in the coming weeks.
We thank all of the stakeholders who have participated over the last several months in working with DOER to develop a long-term, stable, and sustainable solar program as envisioned by An Act Relative to Solar Energy signed into law by Governor Baker in 2016. Our next program will enable the Commonwealth to continue the robust growth in solar development while doing so at a reasonable cost for ratepayers. This program is another step forward in accomplishing our mission to create a clean, affordable, resilient energy future for Massachusetts.
