Connecticut Renewable Energy Credits

Connecticut customers have an opportunity to develop renewable generation through the Low Emission Renewable Energy Credit (LREC) and Zero Emission Renewable Energy Credit (ZREC) Program.

Electric customers of Eversource in Connecticut who install new, qualifying renewable energy projects – ranging from rooftop solar panels to fuel cells – now have an opportunity to sell the qualified Connecticut Class I renewable energy credits (RECs) created from their projects to Eversource under a long-term, 15-year contract. 

The LREC/ZREC Program has been replaced by the Non-Residential Renewable Energy Solutions (NRES) Program. LREC/ZREC bids and applications are no longer being accepted. Please click here to be redirected to the NRES Program Page. If you have questions about the LREC/ZREC Program at Eversource, please email or call 844-726-7573.
