Massachusetts is the friendliest state to solar!

Payback periods now average between 4 and 6 years.

In Massachusetts, both net-metering credits and Solar Renewable Energy Certificates (SRECs) have been used to incentivize installing solar. Incentive systems such as SREC I and SREC II have been generating up to $2,500/year on average in income for solar PV owners, making for a shorter payback period. This incentive will shift in spring or summer 2018 to the SMART incentive (the value of which has not yet been determined, but is projected to be lower than SREC II). Additionally, there is a state tax credit of up to $1,000, and sales and property tax exemption for PV installations.
