What is a Solar Renewable Energy Credit?

SRECs, or Solar Renewable Energy Certificates or Credits are a solar incentive that allows homeowners to sell certificates to their utility. A homeowner will earn one SREC for every 1000 kilowatt hours (kWhs) produced by their solar panel system. An SREC can be worth as much as $300 in certain markets.
