11183Re: [hreg] SRECs in Texas
- Mar 11, 2012Texas' RECs are generic in nature. There are no solar, wind, bio etc recs specifically. There are RE credits that are so abundant due to the tremendous amount of wind power generated that they are essentially worthless. This would change immediately if legislation could be passed to separate them.
This was the explanation I heard from TREIA several years ago.

Texas has never voted for an SREC – a Solar Renewable Credit. This is one among many reasons we don’t have more solar generation in Texas . Texas has a Renewable Portfolio Standard that issues RECs – Renewable Energy Credits. Solar qualifies for RECs, but the current price is so low as to be completely worthless. You can find out more information on the ERCOT and IREC websites.

Subject: [hreg] SRECs in Texas
Does anyone know if it is possible for a Texas homeowner with a small solar PV system earning SREC (Solar Renewable Energy Certificates)?
If so, how is it done?
