New Jersey PSE&G Solar Loan Program

Public Service Electric and Gas Company (PSE&G) of New Jersey has a loan program for residential and non-residential solar projects. Recipients have the option of paying off the loan with the Solar Renewable Energy Certificates (SRECs) that the system produces over time. The value of these SRECs will be determined by the higher of the market price or the pre-agreed-upon floor price for each system. Floor prices for SRECs have ranged between $120 to $450 per SREC.

Solar loan applications consist of a description of the system, customer credit information, and a proposed SREC floor price bid. Interest rates for residential solar loans in New Jersey range from 6.5% to 11% per year. Loan amounts are calculated based on the net present value of the SRECs that the system is estimated to be able to produce over the course of the 10 year loan term at the bid SREC floor price.
