PURA launches statewide electric power storage program

The Public Utilities Regulatory Authority formally launched the “Energy Storage Solutions” initiative on the first of the year, in partnership with the Connecticut Green Bank, which will administer the program, Eversource and UI. End users will be eligible to receive incentives for setting up power storage devices, which can help make the broader power grid more resilient, especially at times when the system is under strain due to inclement weather. In a statement, PURA Chair Marissa P. Gillett said the initiative will help move Connecticut toward its goal of deploying 1,000 megawatts of energy storage by the end of 2030, a measure intended to increase the state grid’s resiliency and assist those who have been disproportionately impacted by past power system failures.
