Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs) Explained

Even among the solar-savvy, many people do not know what Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs) are or what potential benefits they represent. As we’ve mentioned before, SRECs (or often simply RECs) allow generators of renewable energy to sell credits to businesses like utilities who need them to comply with government regulations. These credits accrue automatically to solar panel owners and often can be traded and sold like stocks on the stock market. 

The team over at 1bog created this video that explains SRECs and how they can yield financial benefits to owners of solar panels.
