ESA files reply comments supporting storage proposal at Maryland Commission
ESA will file reply comments today in response to a request for comments on the Proof of Regulatory Concept program proposal that ESA helped develop through the PC 44 Energy Storage Working Group over the past year. In our reply comments, ESA makes the case that the concerns raised by parties on this Proposal should not preclude the Commission from approving the proposed program. ESA argues that the program’s very design is intended to provide additional information for the Commission to further deliberate and clarify the issues related to ownership, competition and cost-effectiveness of energy storage in Maryland through a narrowly scoped, limited duration, and small-scale program. ESA will testify in a hearing on the proposal on March 13.
