Solar Panels Incentives in Maryland, PPA Lease or PurchaseEarn Money as You Generate Electricity with “SREC’s”

The solar energy that you produce and return to the grid is a tradable commodity that you own. The tradable commodity is known as a Solar Energy Renewable Credit or SREC. We set you up with a third party company that manages the process automatically. You just enjoy the money you earn. Essentially, this is how you sell your energy back to the open market, where 1 SREC = 1 megawatt hour of electricity. Click for more detail.

Get Money Back from your Utility Company with Net Metering

If you generate more electricity than you use, the excess goes back to your utility company, spinning the meter backward and giving you a credit for the electricity your solar panel system generated. In simple terms, net metering allows residential and commercial customers to get money back from their utility company. Click for more detail.
