According to the filing, Trump's Affordable Clean Energy (ACE) rule undermines efforts already under way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by investing in renewable energy, electric vehicle infrastructure and energy efficiency and other clean technologies.
ACE allows states three years to devise their own plans to cut emissions mainly by encouraging coal-fired power plants to improve efficiency.
The coalition members include: Con Edison, Exelon Corp, National Grid, PG&E Corp, Public Service Enterprise Group Inc, Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, Seattle City Light, Sacramento Municipal Utility District and New York Power Authority.

The Project will develop and test methods of mitigating barriers to energy storage implementation. The demonstration project batteries will consist of a 4MW/8MWh portfolio of aggregated batteries located at individual battery sites behind-the-meter of commercial and industrial customers and co-located with distribution-connected remote solar projects. The battery installations will be developed, designed, installed, operated and maintained by Tesla.
The $5.6 million project is expected to pay for itself quickly by creating over $700,000 in value per year in the New York ISO energy, capacity and ancillary services markets.

The Harmonizer measures the incoming voltage from the grid. It knows the maximum savings your electrical equipment will allow and tunes the voltage down as much as it can. Voltage from the grid often fluctuates so the Harmonizer dynamically compensates in real time.
Even if the voltage naturally pops down to the optimum level, the system goes into a bypass state to let everything through. So your building will always get what it needs while saving the most amount of money possible, accxording to the company website.
The increase in incentives funding relevant to Legend's offering comes from Con Edison's Commercial and Industrial Energy Efficiency Program. which previously offered a performance-based Custom incentive of $0.16 per kWh. This typically equates to a cash contribution ranging from $10,000 to $25,000 for a Legend project. Con Edison has added an incentive of $600 per kW saved, significantly increasing the typical funding range for a Legend project from $20,000 to $50,000, according to the company website.
