The Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources approved a Solar Renewable Energy Certificate market that began operation in January, 2010. Known as Commonwealth Solar II, the program provides rebates for the installation of photovoltaic (PV) systems at residential, commercial, industrial, institutional and public facilities. Rebate amounts are based on the total PV system size per building, regardless of the number of electric meters in use and certain other characteristics of the project. Beyond the base incentive of $0.40/watt, the program also offers an 'adder' of $0.05/watt for projects that include components manufactured by Massachusetts companies.
