ESA Statement on Connecticut Energy Storage Target Signed into Law, Clearing the Way for 1 GW Energy Storage by 2030

Today, Connecticut Governor Lamont signed SB 952 into law. U.S. Energy Storage Interim CEO Jason Burwen released the following statement:

“Connecticut today becomes the eighth state to set a storage deployment target, growing in-state storage jobs and investment while accelerating progress toward a decarbonized, resilient power system. We thank Governor Lamont and state Congressional leaders for recognizing the importance of deploying energy storage at scale to ensure electric grid infrastructure is ready for 21st century demands. We look forward to working with the Public Utilities Regulatory Authority and the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection to see this target become a reality and bring benefits to all Connecticut residents and businesses.”
