What Are Stormwater Retention Credits?
Stormwater retention credits, or SRCs are created by voluntarily installing new green infrastructure or by removing impervious surfaces on private property.
Those credits can then be sold to buyers who purchase credits to meet regulatory requirements.
How It Works
We supply quality offsite green infrastructure options to comply with regulatory requirements.
Request the number of Stormwater Retention Credits you need and how many years of compliance you want.
Rainplan will send you a purchase agreement confirming the available SRCs. If we run out of credits, we will work to find another seller and negotiate the most competitive price possible.
Digitally sign your purchase agreement, and Rainplan will submit the registration with the District’s Department of Energy and Environment (DOEE).
