Why Solar?

Rhode Island Solar Incentives

State incentives for Rhode Island

Through the Renewable Energy Growth (REG) program, Rhode Island Energy (formerly National Grid) pays residential system owners in Rhode Island a performance-based incentive (PBI) for producing solar energy. The PBI is a flat rate per kilowatt-hour, which is determined by multiple factors including term and project size.

Participation in the REG program is offered on a first-come, first-serve basis. While you may be eligible, capacity is limited. If you have a recently-installed solar PV system or if you’re looking to make the switch to solar in the near future, contact us today to discuss your options.

For more information about the REG program, visit the program’s main page or contact us.

Massachusetts Solar Incentives

State incentives for Massachusetts

In 2018, the SMART program (Solar Massachusetts Renewable Target) replaced SREC and SREC-II as the current state-run incentive for Massachusetts residents to join the renewable energy movement.

This program allows utility companies including National Grid and Eversource to pay residential solar PV system owners a flat rate for power that the system produces and sends to the grid. If your system produces more electricity than you need, that extra power is sent back to the grid and you receive a credit for that electricity.

As long as you own your solar panels, this is a win-win for you. You get the power you need, while your panels work overtime to earn you credits.
