Concerning energy storage, and, in connection therewith, requiring the public utilities commission to establish mechanisms for investor-owned electric utilities to procure energy storage systems if certain criteria are satisfied.

The bill directs the public utilities commission to adopt rules establishing mechanisms for the procurement of energy storage systems by investor-owned electric utilities, based on an analysis of costs and benefits as well as factors such as grid reliability and a reduction in the need for additional peak generation capacity. The information supplied by the utilities must include appropriate data and must specify interconnection points to enable independent evaluation.
