Why Solar?

Rhode Island Solar Incentives

State incentives for Rhode Island

Rhode Island Energy, formerly National Grid, offers the Renewable Energy Growth (REG) program to residential system owners in Rhode Island. Under this program, participants receive a performance-based incentive (PBI) for generating solar energy. The REG program provides performance-based incentives for small-scale solar projects (up to 25 kW) through tariff payments. Participants are paid a fixed rate for each kilowatt-hour (kWh) of solar power produced over a 15-20 year period.

Participation in the REG program is on a first-come, first-served basis. Although you may be eligible, capacity is limited. If you have recently installed a solar PV system or plan to switch to solar in the near future, please contact us to explore 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.
