The Hampshire COG’s SREC aggregation currently represents almost 1170 homeowners, small business owners, and municipal building managers across Massachusetts and we are growing every day. Our mission is to remove the hassles and mitigate the barriers that small scale solar generators experience when participating in the Massachusetts Solar Renewable Energy Credit (SREC) market. We aggregate our members’ credits and sell them to competitive suppliers and distribution companies in need of credits to attain compliance with Massachusetts’ Renewable Portfolio Standards. Apart from a small broker fee of 5% for systems under 50kW and 3% for systems at or over 50kW, the money is returned directly to the generator. Instead of leaving the state, the broker fee is reinvested in funding local green energy initiatives.
The Hampshire Council of Governments is the local choice for SREC Aggregation. Not only do we carefully monitor the SREC marketplace to ensure that you get top dollar for your credits, we operate solely for the benefit of our region. The Hampshire Council of Governments is a dedicated leader in supporting programs that strengthen the Massachusetts economy and finding sustainable solutions for the region.
