The state of PA has a solar renewable energy certificate program (SREC). Historically, solar projects outside of the state could trade their clean energy credits within the state. This broad access led to depressed market development for in state installations.

This is changing now. Expect an increase in installations. I’ve not got much of an opinion on how much money per year for end user this might mean – don’t know much about the structure of the market. SRECTrade might.

SOURCE: Section 2804(2)(i) – “[a] certification originating within the geographical boundaries of this Commonwealth…” shall mean a facility located within PA having received an AEPS Tier I solar photovoltaic certification.
