Frequently Asked Questions

What are Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs)?

keyboard_arrow_down

If you own a rooftop solar system on your home or building, you can sell credits for every 1 MW (or 1,000 kW) you generate. These credits are minted to prove that your system generated renewable energy. Some states mandate that utilities and other buyers purchase SRECs from homes and businesses in order to meet the RPS law. You can generate and sell your SRECs through Currents, creating passive income without lifting a finger.

Am I selling my energy when I sell my SRECs?

keyboard_arrow_down

No, you are not selling the actual energy or electrons when you sell SRECs. These credits represent the "renewable" attributes of the energy you've generated. It's an additional value that solar provides to the energy grid. Selling energy is often referred to as Net Energy Metering (NEM), when your utility credits you for the solar you sell to the grid. SRECs and NEM are separate benefits of solar that don't interfere with each other.

Why are SRECs valuable at all?

keyboard_arrow_down

Renewable energy that comes from your solar system is valuale to the grid and the other parties who purchase and sell energy. When renewable energy is exported to the grid, it's mixed into all the other form of electricity, dirty or clean. SRECs create value because they are verified certificates of your energy's "renewableness". SRECs are just the solar-specific version of the REC market.

How much can I earn from selling SRECs?

keyboard_arrow_down

The price of SRECs varies by day and by the location of your solar system. Each state has its own market and the prices fluctuate like any other market. We'll help you identify how much your SRECs are worth and pay you based on this price.

How do you know how much energy I'm generating?

keyboard_arrow_down

By connecting your solar data to our platform, we can automate the creation of SRECs on your behalf. It's an automated and simple process that only takes a couple of minutes to add your account and start earning. Similar to how you would connect Venmo to your bank accout, we can connect your solar data to the SREC market.

What options do I have to sell my credits?

keyboard_arrow_down

With Currents, we offer a few options to sell your credits. For some system owners, they want a lump sum upfront. For others, we can payout monthly through the market spot prices. These will fluctuate more but it will become passive income for you. Feel free to contact us to learn more about what works best for you.

What is the sign up process?

keyboard_arrow_down

It's quite simple. First, you'll need to provide us with your system information - panels, inverter, interconnection date and more. We'll register your system with your state and tracking registry on your behalf. From there, you'll sign a form to let us manage the SRECs and connect your solar data. Lastly, tell us what kind of payout you'd like. We'll take it from there and keep you updated along the way!
