SMART replaces the Solar Renewable Energy Credit (SREC) program in Massachusetts. It is designed to give developers long-term stable and predictable pricing for solar projects less than 5-MW in capacity by setting a floor price for energy generated from accepted projects. Solar with storage is greatly incen...
