In its order issued December 26, 2013 in Case 07-M-0548 (Program Changes to the Energy Efficiency Portfolio Standard), the New York State Public Service Commission (PSC or Commission) announced a fundamental reconsideration of New York State’s regulatory paradigms and markets concerning the electric power system, calling for a re-examination of how the State’s policy objectives are served both by clean energy programs and by the regulation of electric utilities. Immediately following the Commission’s December 26, 2013 Order, on January 7, 2014, the New York State Energy Planning Board released a draft of the 2014 State Energy Plan. Among other initiatives, the draft 2014 State Energy Plan called on the Commission to “enable and facilitate new energy business models for utilities, energy service companies, and customers to be compensated for activities that contribute to grid efficiency.”
