Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS) are targets set by states for the amount of energy that must be generated from renewable sources, including solar. These standards can impact the growth and development of the solar industry in a state and affect the customer’s ability to participate in programs and incentives.
An RPS is usually set statewide and applies to investor-owned utilities. Sometimes, however, cooperative and municipal utilities establish an RPS that does not apply to the rest of the state, so it is best to check with your local and state governments for accurate information.
Solar Renewable Energy Certificates (SRECs) are credits that are earned for each unit of renewable energy generated. SRECs are specific to solar energy and can be sold or traded to utilities to help them meet their RPS requirements. Therefore, SRECs offer a financial reward for utility companies and homeowners that adopt solar energy.
The worth and cost of SRECs can differ from state to state, with the highest price typically set by what is referred to as an Alternative Compliance Payment (ACP). If a utility fails to acquire enough SRECs that would meet the RPS, they will be subjected to financial penalties determined by the regulator at ACP level. Owing to this, utilities would never pay higher than ACP for an SREC – thus effectively capping off its market value.

Floridas net metering policy under most net metering policies, customers have the right to own the Renewable Energy Certificates (RECS) generated in relation to their electrical output. requires utilities to credit customers the full retail rate for each kilowatt-hour of excess solar energy they generate, which can significantly reduce your monthly energy bill.

Firstly, the borrowing is used for investments that result in lower electricity expenses, meaning both the cost reductions and the loan payments will appear on one bill. Ideally, the energy savings should be higher than the loan payments, demonstrating the benefits of investment.
