On April 8, 2016, The Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER) filed an Emergency Regulation with the Secretary of the Commonwealth’s office to address recent developments in the state’s solar PV market. Recognizing that a long-term sustainable solution will take time to develop and that many projects are in advanced stages of development, the emergency regulation is intended to address market uncertainty and establish a smooth transition from SREC II to the next incentive program. This page provides the latest information regarding the process of promulgating such Emergency Regulation.
