New York Transforming Electric System
The New York State Public Service Commission has started a process to transform its regulation of electric distribution utilities that includes a more mainstream inclusion of energy efficiency and renewable generation.
“We can no longer afford to think of energy efficiency and clean energy resources as peripheral elements of the electric system. Rather, the time has come to manage the capabilities of new customer-based technologies as a core, clean source of value to customers and the electric grid,” said Commission Chair Audrey Zibelman.
The Commission said a better integration of consumer-oriented energy efficiency and clean-energy technologies and a more complete management of the electricity consumed in the state will improve system-wide reliability and efficiency, while preserving affordable rates.
Broad policy-based outcomes would result in changes to its regulatory model, including performance- and outcome-based incentives that will be required to achieve broad policy objectives.
