By Board Order on July 28, 2021, the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (NJBPU) established the SuSI Program to implement the Clean Energy Act of 2018 (L. 2018, c.17) and the Solar Act of 2021 (L. 2021, c. 169). The SuSI Program replaces the SREC Registration Program (SRP), which was closed to new registration on April 30, 2020 pursuant to the Clean Energy Act, and the Transition Incentive (TI) Program, which provided a bridge between the Legacy SRP and the SuSI Program.

The SuSI Program is made up of two sub-programs:

Administratively Determined Incentive Program

The ADI Program provides incentives for net metered residential projects, net metered non-residential projects of 5 MW or less, all community solar projects, and, for an interim period, projects previously eligible to seek conditional certification from the Board under Subsection (t). The interim market segment is blocked for 75 MW, while net-metered residential, net-metered non-residential, and community solar (LMI and Non-LMI) is blocked for 150 MW. The program will accept new registrations for each market segment on a first-come, first-served basis until the block is fully subscribed. Current available capacity is posted on the homepage of the ADI online portal.

Competitive Solar Incentive Program
