For systems of less than 10 kW, Ameren will pay an up-front, lump sum payment for the estimated number of Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs) that will be produced for 10 years. The estimated 10-year production will be calculated by Ameren using PVWatts software.

For systems of 10 kW to 100 kW, Ameren offers a 10-year contract for the SRECs, and will make annual payments to the customer based on the number of SRECs produced in the previous year.
