Description (excerpt):

New York and California are leading the country in their approaches to integrate distributed energy resources (DERs). However, those approaches differ in some important ways including their starting points. In New York, DER penetration has been minimal to date, and the Public Service Commission (PSC) has adopted the view that “if we build it, they will come,” creating the infrastructure and incentives to bring DERs to the state. Creating a path to changing the utility business model and “market animation” have featured prominently in the state’s Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) proceedings. REV consists of myriad interlocking proceedings that address demonstration projects, large-scale renewables, rate reform, low income issues, planning the grid, and more. These initiatives impact each other, and the incentives, requirements, earnings opportunities, and metrics are linked and overlap.
