SRECs are based on energy production, but some state programs allow production to be estimated rather than reported from actual energy production. Systems on production estimates do not have to report actual energy production.
What systems are eligible for production estimates?
How are estimates calculated?
Estimates are calculated from system specifications such as:
- Capacity (Watts) and quantity of panels
- Panel tilt
- Panel azimuth (orientation)
Can estimates be turned off?
Production estimates are generally accurate and provide systems with the appropriate amount of SRECs. However, systems can be converted to report actual energy production if SRECs are being underestimated.
Can estimates be turned on?
