The Solar Massachusetts Renewable Target (SMART) Program

Wednesday, April 12, 2017 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

The Solar Carve-Out and SREC program within the Massachusetts RPS have led to dramatic increases in solar capacity in the Commonwealth. Last year, the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER) carried out a thorough process, with considerable stakeholder input, to design a new program that would maintain robust growth in the number of solar installations while reducing costs for ratepayers. A new solar incentive program is now in the process of being implemented. Among other things, it seeks to reduce market risk and uncertainty so that incentives will not need to be as large.

In this webinar, Kaitlin Kelly, RPS Program Coordinator at DOER, described the context for the program, discussed the program’s design considerations, and explained how the program will work and be rolled out. Her presentation was followed by a Q&A with the audience.

This webinar was presented by the Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA) for the RPS Collaborative.
