ESA Supported 1 GW Storage Target in Connecticut; Advances Toward Final Passage
- Sets interim targets of 300 MW by 2024 and 650 MW by 2027, and requires the Public Utilities Regulation Authority (“PURA”) and Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (“DEEP”) to report annually on progress toward the goal.
- Directs PURA to establish programs to deploy energy storage on the distribution system, consistent with and expanding upon its current Straw Proposal for 580 MW of customer-sited energy storage.
- Authorizes the DEEP to issue requests for proposals for standalone and paired energy storage projects, consistent with the goal.
