All existing Delaware sited systems , meaning not “new”, and any out of state systems that qualify( generally utility connected)
Tier 1 systems are considered “New” for bidding purposes if they have not yet been built or have an Interconnection Approval To Operate date of June 9, 2017 or later. All systems larger than 50 kW are considered “New” if they have not yet been built or have an Interconnection Approval To Operate date of August 4, 2018 or later (tiers 2-4 except leased <50kW).
Delmarva has discretion to refuse any bids they feel are too high. Any such refused bids cannot be used to fill other Tiers.
As in past years, projects without approval to operate will require a bid deposit of $100 per kW. That deposit is returned once the systems is interconnected.
The 2019 program has the following substantive changes from the 2018 program:
- The number of Tiers were reduced for simplification. Please see details tab above for a complete breakdown of the five (5) tiers.
- Tier 1 systems are considered “New” for bidding purposes if they have not yet been built or have an Interconnection Approval To Operate date on or later than June 9, 2017. All systems larger than 50 kW are considered “New” if they have not yet been built or have an Interconnection Approval To Operate date on or later than August 4, 2018.
- Tier 2 can use any financing model. In Tier 2, no one owner can take more than 50% of the SRECs, unless that Tier is undersubscribed. Then they could take the undersubscribed portion once other bids are filled.
- Tier 3 is all new systems above 500 kW to 2 MW, all financing/ownership methods allowed.
