Monthly Update of Solar Generator Certification

As of November 1st, the solar energy systems eligible for the District’s RPS solar requirement include 13,101 solar systems (including 362 CREFs) in the District.  Total District solar certifications have increased by about 13% compared to the same period last year.  In addition, 3,566 solar energy systems outside of the District are eligible—up about 10% from a year ago due to systems in Maryland on cross-border feeders.  The total reported capacity associated with these systems is about 256 MW, of which roughly 210 MW is located within the District.  Recent pricing on Flett Exchange shows DC SRECs are currently trading around $425.  The recent bid price on SRECTrade is $428.
