Solar installers and investors in New Jersey have been expecting a legislative fix to the SREC market. The market prices have collapsed to the $100 level this past year due to overbuilding of solar compared to the state requirements. Changes in legislation could correct the market to take into account the lower cost of solar. Potential changes to legislation are an increase in the renewable portfolio standard RPS and a decrease in the solar alternative compliance payment SACP.
Activity was brisk on the spot market on Flett Exchange today with the market rallying $7.50 for a settlement of $110.00 for energy year 2012 SRECs. As of 3pm the market was showing buyers willing to pay $110 per SREC with sellers willing to accept $120 to sell.
