NY PSC OKs Community Solar Consolidated Billing (Ind. Report)
New York State,Community Solar
Date: 2019-12-13
In Albany, the New York Public Service Commission (PSC) reports the issuance of an order allowing consolidated billing for community solar projects. The ruling is expected spur the cost-effective completion of over 1 GW of community solar projects currently in development, which in turn will help the state reach its goal of 6 GW of distributed solar by 2025, as required by the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CPCLA).

Consolidated billing has another benefit as well. Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) programs, which allow local communities to leverage their combined demand to purchase renewable forms of power and other energy services, have not included community solar projects in their portfolios because of the high customer acquisition costs and because CCA programs typically use an "opt-out" model, in which customers are enrolled in the CCA unless they specifically decline to participate.

PSC Expands New York's Energy Storage Resources (Ind. Report)
New York Public Service Commission
Date: 2018-02-28
Furthher to our December 8, 2017 report, the New York PSC last week approved two measures aimed at growing energy storage resources in the Empire State and helping to meet Gov. Andrew Cuomo's 1,500 MW energy storage target by 2025.

Regulators approved a plan for Consolidated Edison Co. to significantly expand the use of battery storage systems in its service territory by simplifying the process for private owners. The PSC also allowed larger storage projects to participate in the state's clean-energy program. The decision raises the maximum rated capacity for projects from 2 MW to 5 MW. The new rules crafted a more straightforward process to allow private energy storage systems to export electricity to ConEd's distribution system.

NY Gov. Cuomo Inks Energy Storage Legislation (Reg & Leg)
New York Public Service Commission
Date: 2017-12-08
Last week in Albany, New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo (D) signed legislation requiring the establishment of a statewide energy storage mandate that provides a framework for the New York Public Service Commission (NYPSC) to establish a goal for the amount of energy storage to be deployed in the Empire State through 2030 and to create policy and regulatory mechanisms that will enable the state utilities to meet the goal.

In addition to establishing a foundation for the advancement of energy storage, the mandate will also complement the state's efforts to ensure that New York remains at the forefront of energy-efficient initiatives, the Governor said. The new energy storage mandate also aligns with the state's 50 pct renewable energy by 2030 clean energy standard.
