Tennessee Market Details

Market Overview

The TN SREC Market is a voluntary market where prices are determined by market forces.

TN-sited systems are also eligible for the Pennsylvania Tier I (PATI) market. The Pennsylvania Tier I (PAT1) Market is an open market where market forces determine prices. Key factors include the Alternative Compliance Penalty and supply and demand based on the Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS). This is a subsection of the Pennsylvania SREC Market open for all eligible systems located in the PJM Grid, which include all or parts of Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia.

CSG will register your system in the highest-priced market that your system is eligible to receive.

ACP and Market Trend

The PAT1 Market is ever changing which is reflective in the pricing for RECs. The market has been trended up throughout the 2022 energy year. The Solar Alternative Compliance Payment (SACP) is set by the RPS and can be viewed as a soft benchmark for what the REC will be valued at. The SACP (or ACP) is a fee imposed on utilities and mandated purchasers for shortfalls in REC procurement.

The Alternative Compliance Payment (ACP) for Tier I  is $45/SREC.  

Retroactivity / Eligibility Start Date
