Connecticut Sets 1 GW Energy Storage Target

SB 952

Status: Engrossed

Connecticut  SB 952 sets a target of 1 GW of energy storage to be deployed by 2030. In addition to a storage target of 1 GW by 2030, the legislation includes the following elements:

  • Sets interim targets of 300 MW by 2024 and 650 MW by 2027, with the Public Utilities Regulation Authority (“PURA”) and Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (“DEEP”) required 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.


This legislation makes Connecticut the eighth state to set an energy storage target.
