To qualify, ZREC projects must be no larger than 1,000 kW. Projects must not produce any emissions while generating electricity, and they must be in Connecticut. Eligible projects are selected based on a lottery drawing. However, even if your project isn’t selected, you can still take advantage of other commercial solar incentives. Currently, three tiers of ZREC projects exist. They include:
- Large ZRECs: Projects ranging from 250 kW to 1,000 kW in size.
- Medium ZRECs: Projects less than 250 kW but greater than 100 kW.
- Small ZRECs: Projects smaller than 100 kW.
