What is an energy credit?
Some call them RECS, SRECS, etc. In Illinois these energy credits are called SRECS, ( Solar Renewable Energy Credit) these are based upon how much energy your system produces. These credits are regulated by each state thru the federal government. In IL. the credits, are purchased by the power company up front, in a one time purchase, for 15 years of credits for systems less than 10KW. If the system is greater than 10KW then the payments a divided up over four years. Most states only get a credit once a month and receive no upfront payment from the utility provider. That's why IL. has such good solar rebates, but there is always a catch, as the credits are applied for, by solar installers the program shrinks and solar credit prices are lowered.

The federal rebate is 30% until the end of 2019, then it shrinks tremendously so get going today, to get the credit system must be installed by the years end.
