As an ambitious proceeding intended to revolutionize the electricity marketplace in New York State, “Reforming the Energy Vision,” has generated a lot of filings, but none more noteworthy than the one submitted last week by New York’s six investor-owned utilities and three solar development companies – all members of AEE. Under the name of the Solar Progress Partnership, utilities including ConEdison and National Grid joined with SolarCity, SunEdison, and SunPower on a filing that put forth a framework for the transition from the current full-retail value of net metering to the REV-envisioned future of a new system of compensation for distributed energy resources (DER). Though it did not sign on to the filing, AEE Institute facilitated the discussions that led to this landmark statement between sometime industry antagonists over the issue that most divides them.
For more on how AEEI facilitated the discussion, continue reading the post on Advanced Energy Perspectives. Here's a round up of news regarding the filing:
