    Set yourself up as a REC's trader ($20 to register) and get $40 a REC through the clearing house. REC's from 2011 are now LGC's or STC's - STC's for small scale renewable energy systems. You may have to wait a few months to get $40 per STC/REC, but better than $34 some installers are quoting. For my 3kw PV solar, installer offered $34 x 185 STC = $6290, I said I'd trade myself and wait and sell through clearing house, then $40 x 185 = $7400 (less $20 to register to do so). So wait a few months, $1100 better off. Your installer doesn't want them as it's more paper works and waiting to get paid, but most will offer something (EcomSmart offer full $40 straight up I believe) to make the up front cost more attractive. Check out for more info on trading STC's / REC's. STC's sold through clearing house is fixed price of $40, sold outside - will paid quicker but less, currently $34/$35.
