Production Tracking System (PTS)

The Production Tracking System is a web-based application that tracks the capacity and production of certain renewable energy systems installed across Massachusetts.

Primary Functions

  1. Provide data to the public about renewable energy systems installed in the Commonwealth to evaluate their performance, ensure the effectiveness the Commonwealth’s renewable energy programs, and promote the growth of the industry in Massachusetts
  2. Provide owners of renewable energy systems a convenient method for tracking their production and participating in certain Massachusetts clean energy incentive programs, including the Renewable Energy Portfolio Standard (RPS), the Alternative Energy Portfolio Standard (APS), and the Clean Peak Standard (CPS)

Incentive Programs Supported

Solar Carve-Out and SRECs

Solar Renewable Energy Certificates

Clean Peak Standard

Data and Reports

Solar PV Systems in Massachusetts is an Excel-based report detailing solar photovoltaic (PV) systems installed in Massachusetts that are registered in the Production Tracking System (PTS). Data includes project cost, location, panels (modules), inverters, meters and installer information.

You can also explore this data using the adjustable filters in the dashboard below. 

For all systems registered for Solar Renewable Energy Certificates, the SREC Capacity Factor Report provides the aggregated ratio of the amount of energy produced to their optimum nameplate (labeled) production capability. The eleven-year (2010 to 2020) average net capacity factor for solar PV systems in Massachusetts is 13.05 percent.  Note: This 54 MB Excel file may be slow to download.
