DOER Announces SMART Incentive Rates

JANUARY 26, 2018

On Thursday, January 11, 2018 the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources released the results of the SMART competitive procurement, setting base incentive rates for the new solar program which is anticipated to start in May or June of 2018.

Regarding the results, Sylvia commented that “SEBANE appreciates the straightforward, market-driven SMART competitive procurement process that resulted in a set of workable base incentive rates announced today by the Department of Energy Resources. Although we are still reviewing the results of the procurement and the associated base incentive rates, we are encouraged by what has been released and applaud the Department of Energy Resources, the Baker Administration and the utilities for a well-managed, fair process that was developed with stakeholder input.”
