Trimark Approved as Data Service Provider for Massachusetts Solar Power Producers
Folsom/ Chatsworth/ Sunnyvale, CA & Norfolk, VA – Trimark Associates, Inc. is pleased to announce it has been approved as a Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) Data Service Provider.
MassCEC, under the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER), is an independent third party meter reader for the purpose of verifying Solar Renewable Energy Certificates (SRECs) for qualified generators, and offers solar generators a way to earn income from their systems.
As a long-time Meter Data Management Agent (MDMA), Trimark is trusted by solar generators and regional authorities across the country to capture and deliver settlement quality meter data, supporting more than $1 billion in electricity transactions each year. Now public utilities, such as National Grid, and commercial businesses operating in the state of Massachusetts who’ve gone solar and want to take advantage of the SREC incentive program can choose Trimark to validate their meter data, produce settlement quality meter data, and prepare comprehensive reports for MassCEC, as required for rebate claims.
As outlined under the incentive program, SRECs are earned as a solar system produces electricity. Retail electricity suppliers are required to purchase a certain amount of SRECs each year that can be sold under the DOER SREC program. SRECs are earned only by reporting solar production through an external partnership, such MassCEC and Trimark.
The approval by MassCEC means Trimark’s meter data management services extend to nearly every region of the country. In addition to the commonwealth organization, Trimark is an approved data service provider for the California Independent System Operator (CAISO), California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), California Solar Initiative (CSI), Pennsylvania-New Jersey-Maryland Interconnection (PJM), Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP), Southwest Power Pool and Western Renewable Energy Generation Information System (WREGIS). Current services include settlement quality meter data preparation, advanced meter reading, validation, estimation and editing.
