ESA calls on Arizona Commission to include storage in energy rules revisions
ESA will file comments today at the Arizona Corporation Commission in response to Staff’s request for written comments on potential modifications to the energy rules. In our comments today, ESA provides a recommended framework for incorporating energy storage in to a broader clean energy plan. The framework includes three critical components: (1) a storage deployment target that will ensure the infrastructure is in place to support the Commission’s clean energy objectives, (2) programs to ensure the realization of the target, including market-based solutions and incentives, and (3) reforms to utility and grid planning rules to ensure energy storage is adequately considered next to traditional investments.
