On April 24th, CL&P and United Illuminating (“UI”) formally issued the Request for Proposal (“RFP”) for the 2014 Connecticut Zero-Emission Renewable Energy Credit (“ZREC”) solar incentive program.
For the third year in a row, the Delaware Public Service Commission has approved Delmarva Power’s 2014 SREC incentive program that allows Delaware businesses to “go solar” on highly attractive terms. Businesses can opt to purchase and own solar systems directly, or can simply decide to purchase the solar electricity at a discount to current electricity rates (with no capital outlay).
Connecticut Light & Power (“CL&P”) and United Illuminating (“UI”) are expected to formally launch the 2014 Zero-Emission Renewable Energy Credit (“ZREC”) solar incentive program over the next several weeks. This will mark the third year the Connecticut has offered the well-received ZREC solar program (2013 program, 2012 program), and since the ZREC program began in 2012, it has provided crucial state-level incentives for over 800 individual solar projects throughout the state.
