Third-party ownership (TPO) has spurred record distributed generation installations across America as homes and businesses lock in cheaper power costs without a large upfront expenditure – but that paradigm is about to change.

Solar Financing Choices and Study Result

Distributed solar photovoltaics (PV) have spread fast across the U.S., topping 12.1 gigawatts total capacity through 2013, with TPO systems representing 66% of the residential market and a considerable portion of the commercial market in 2013. But as solar goes mainstream, new capital investments are spreading fast. Given the typical 20-year lifespan of a solar PV system, picking the right financing option could mean thousands in savings, so which is best? Financing Options Spread With Solar’s Surge High upfront costs traditionally made the TPO decision a no-brainer for homeowners and businesses. But even with rapid solar cost declines, owning a rooftop array doesn’t always create economic benefits.

An SREC is a Solar Renewable Energy Certificate.

SRECs: Solar Renewable Energy Credits - Pure Energies

Your solar system produces a certain number of these credits every year. Utilities can then purchase the SRECs you produce to offset their non-renewable energy production. In these states, SRECs are valued at a certain amount of money and homeowners get a broker like SRECTrade to do that for them. In this way, solar can not only save money for homeowners in SREC states, it can actually generate income for them.

Can I redeem SRECs anywhere? SRECs are currently only available in states where a Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) exists with a specification for solar power. Which States Offer SRECs? States in which the SRECs are actively being traded now include Maryland, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. How much is an SREC worth? Another important way SRECs are valuable. If you’re leasing a solar system, your leasing provider may be the one to keep and sell the SRECs, instead of you. Solar Panel Comparison - June 2013 - Energy Informative.

Growth in residential electricity prices highest in 6 years, but expected to slow in 2015

Energy Information Administration, Electric Power Monthly and Short-Term Energy Outlook Residential electricity customers in most areas of the country experienced large increases in retail electricity prices during 2014, with the average U.S. residential price increasing 3.1% over the previous year. The increase represents the highest annual growth rate since 2008. EIA forecasts that prices will increase during 2015, but at a slower pace than in 2014. Residential electricity rate increases during 2014 ranged from 1.3% in the Pacific Coast states to 9.9% in New England. How many acres of solar power panels do 1,000 homes need? - Denver Business Journal. It takes 32 acres of solar power panels to meet the demands of 1,000 homes, according to a new study from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden.

Renewable portfolio standard. A Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) is a regulation that requires the increased production of energy from renewable energy sources, such as wind, solar, biomass, and geothermal. Other common names for the same concept include Renewable Electricity Standard (RES) at the United States federal level and Renewables Obligation in the UK. RPS-type mechanisms have been adopted in several countries, including Britain, Italy, Poland, Sweden, Belgium,[2] and Chile, as well as in 33 of 50 U.S. states, and the District of Columbia.[3] Program diversity[edit] Of all the state-based RPS programs in place today, no two are the same.

Tree Math: Solar Panels vs. Trees, What’s the Carbon Trade-off? Here in New England, there is no shortage of trees. And, as you can imagine, trees can be an enemy of solar energy. On a regular basis, I recommend to our customers that they remove trees to improve solar production. Why do I care enough about one customer’s production to suggest cutting down valuable natural resources?

Because the more solar energy your system can produce, the greater its financial benefits to you and its environmental benefits to the planet. 2014 Top 10 Solar States.

SEIA Hails Energy Department Initiative to Train Solar Workers. WASHINGTON, DC - In a decision that’s certain to help to speed up America’s transition to a clean energy future, President Obama announced today that the Department of Energy (DOE) will launch a new initiative to train 75,000 Americans – including military veterans – to enter the solar workforce by 2020. The President made the announcement at Hill Air Force Base in Utah as part of a roundtable discussion on clean energy technology and workforce training with Sen. Orin Hatch, Congressman Rob Bishop and Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker.

“This new initiative will provide a big boost to the U.S. economy, while also helping to maintain solar energy’s explosive jobs growth,” said Rhone Resch, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA). “With stable public policies in place, we will not only meet the President’s goal of adding 75,000 new solar jobs in America by 2020, but we will blow past it. Resch said the industry is also helping to fight climate change.
