I understand from reading things in the web, not from first hand
experience.
A unit of R.E.C. comes from 1MWh of energy produced by renewable
means.
I think large entities --solar contractor-aggregators, utilities or
industrial polluters
 use it to offset their carbon footprint, or damage to the
environment, or cash.

 It would help to know which state you are in specifically.

You can start here... http://www.flettexchange.com/

Look at the various state links down the left side of the page.
Clicking on a state will bring up a graph of the sale prices of the
SRECs.

SRECs are state-specific at this point, so the value of them varies
quite a bit.  They're also based on the Energy Year they're produced,
so the value of one produced today will typically be higher than the
value of one produced in 5 years.

A couple key terms that play into the value of SRECs:

RPS - Renewable Portfolio Standard
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Renewable_Portfolio_Standard
ACP - Alternate Compliance Payment
http://www.dsireusa.org/incentives/incentive.cfm?Incentive_Code=NJ05R&re=1&ee=1

Let me know if you have any more questions, and I'll do my best to
help out.
