The solar industry has been getting bigger in the US over the past decade. If you start thinking of going solar you should consider all the pros and cons of it.
Electricity prices in NJ are reported to be 30% higher than the US average, whereas the cost of going solar has dropped significantly. New Jersey doesn’t get that much sunshine with approximately 206 sunny days a year out of 365. But the state offers financial incentives, which make it one of the best states for solar.
If your solar system produces more energy than you need, you are allowed to sell the difference back to the grid at the retail price. This makes your energy bills much lower and prevents excess electricity from going to waste.
Jersey Central Power & Light (JCP&L) and PSE&G offer net metering programs in New Jersey.
Transition Renewable Energy Certificates (TRECs) provide incentives for all solar systems certified under the Transition Incentive (TI) Program.
SREC-II certificates provide incentives for all solar systems certified under the Successor Solar Incentive (SuSI) Administratively Determined Incentive (ADI) Program.
Under this program you can generate one certificate for every Mw/h. Its value can vary depending on the type of your system.
