I'm doing the sums on the cost effectiveness of installing a 1.5KW Solar Power System on my roof, which would be connected to the grid, and whilst there is a Federal Government Rebate of $8,000 what I'm trying to work is how much my Renewable Energy Credits are worth. REC's are given for each megawatt-hour of eligible renewable electricity generated or deemed to have generated by the SGU (Small generation Unit).
To my understanding what I'll effectively have is a SGU creating carbon credits which I then sell to someone whom then onsells them, is this correct?
Below is a list of REC traders but nowhere can I find anyone letting on that they actualy buy RECs..
Before I actualy call an REC trader and make light of what they offer I was wondering if there is anybody whom has already negotiated with an REC trader on a price for your RECs, and if so what would be deemed a good price, I guess it's judged on kWh?
