If you are a customer of one of the participating EDCs, please follow these steps:

    1. Review the RFP: Review the RFP Bid Rules (see Documents).
    2. Find a solar trade ally.  To help consumers make wise decisions in regard to solar, the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities provides a list of solar installers and vendors. Since the decision to invest in clean energy technology is frequently impacted by many site specific factors, we recommend that applicants get started by talking with at least three different vendors early in the process.  For more information, see: http://www.njcleanenergy.com/findavendor
    3. Register for an SRP Number: Register with the NJ SREC Registration Program to obtain an SRP number.  You may work with your contractor on this registration process. You must have this number to participate in the SREC-II program.  See https://njcepsolar.programprocessing.com/
    4. Complete a Consolidated Bid Application (see Documents) with required attachments.  See Section 13 of the Bid Application for more information.  The required attachments include:
    5. Develop your price bid.  Since this is a 10-year, fixed price contract, the current SREC spot market price does not reflect a bid price that would be competitive.
    6. Submit your Application: Email your Consolidated Bid Application before November 30, 2016 by 5PM Eastern to njsolar@navigant.com.
    7. Award Notification: You will be notified typically within 6 to 10 weeks whether the application you submitted is awarded.
    8. Accept Award: If you are notified of an award, you must submit a bid deposit of $75 per kW.  Depending on your project size, the minimum deposit is $500 and the maximum is $20,000.
    9. Proceed to Construct: Once you receive notification of an award, you may then proceed to construct your Solar PV facility.  You will receive, 45 days after the award announcement, an SREC Purchase and Sale Agreement which you will need to sign and return promptly.
    10. Your Solar PV system begins operating.  For the next 10-years you will receive a check each quarter from your utility for the SRECs your Solar PV facility has generated.  1 SREC is created for every 1,000 kWh your system generates

If you are a developer or installer, please follow these steps:

    1. Review RFP:  Review the RFP Bid Rules (see Documents).
    2. Find a customer:  Locate a customer interested in putting Solar Photovoltaic panels on their property or rooftop.  If that customer desires a fixed payment paid quarterly for the SRECs a Solar PV facility would produce – they would be a candidate for this program. Explain the RFP terms and process.  Refer them to this website for further information.  If acceptable, proceed to evaluate and estimate of the size of the PV system and develop the commercial terms of the arrangement.
