Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (BPU) has released its detailed plans to close the Solar Renewable Energy Credit (SREC) program to new applications and transition to a successor program.

Following is a statement from Sean Gallagher, vice president of state affairs for the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA):

"The solar industry is pleased with the BPU’s plans for closing the existing SREC market and starting the transition to a successor program. This approach should allow enough time to develop a new program and provide continuity for the New Jersey solar market through 2020.

“The BPU’s actions this week are positive steps toward meeting the Murphy administration’s clean energy objectives and we look forward to working with them as the transition details are ironed out over the next several months.”
