                STATE OF NEW YORK
                   IN ASSEMBLY
                                      June 5, 2018
        Introduced  by  COMMITTEE ON RULES -- (at request of M. of A. Cusick) --
          read once and referred to the Committee on Energy
        AN ACT to amend the public service law, in relation to establishing  the
          energy storage deployment policy
          The  People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:

     1    Section 1. Section 74 of the public service law, as amended by a chap-
     2  ter of the laws of 2018 amending the public service law and  the  public
     3  authorities  law  relating to establishing the energy storage deployment
     4  policy, as proposed in  legislative  bills  numbers  S.  7318-A  and  A.
     5  8921-A, is amended to read as follows:
     6    §  74.  Energy  storage deployment policy. 1.  As used in this section
     7  "qualified energy storage  system"  shall  mean  commercially  available
     8  technology  that is capable of absorbing energy, storing it for a period
     9  of time, and thereafter dispatching the energy using mechanical,  chemi-
    10  cal, or thermal processes to store energy that was generated at one time
    11  for use at a later time.
    12    2.    By  December thirty-first, two thousand eighteen, the commission
    13  shall, in consultation with the  New  York  state  energy  research  and
    14  development  authority  [and],  the Long Island power authority, and the
    15  federally designated electric bulk system operator for New  York  state,
    16  after  a  hearing  held  on  notice, establish by order, rules and regu-
    17  lations, both a two thousand thirty energy storage goal  for  the  state
    18  and a deployment policy to support that goal. The energy storage deploy-
    19  ment  policy  shall  [include  the  following]  assist with and take the
    20  following into consideration:
    21    (a) avoided or deferred costs associated with  transmission,  distrib-
    22  ution, [or] and/or generation capacity;
    23    (b) minimization of peak load in constrained areas;
    24    (c) systems that are connected to customer facilities and systems that
    25  are directly connected to transmission and distribution facilities;
    26    (d) cost-effectiveness;
    27    (e) [assisting] the integration of variable-output energy resources;
    28    (f) reducing emissions of greenhouse gases;
         EXPLANATION--Matter in italics (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                              [ ] is old law to be omitted.

        A. 11099                            2
     1    (g) reducing demand for peak electrical generation; [and]
     2    (h) improving the reliable operation of the electrical transmission or
     3  distribution systems; and
     4    (i) such other issues deemed appropriate by the commission.
     5    3. To the extent that the energy storage deployment policy directs the
     6  procurement  of  qualified  energy  storage  systems  to encourage their
     7  deployment, such procurements shall be  awarded  through  a  competitive
     8  process.
     9    4.  Annual reports on the achievements and effectiveness of the policy
    10  [to] shall be submitted to the governor, the temporary president of  the
    11  senate, and the speaker of the assembly[; and
    12    (j) Such other issues deemed appropriate by the commission].
    13    §  2.  This  act  shall  take  effect on the same date and in the same
    14  manner as a chapter of the laws of 2018 amending the public service  law
    15  and the public authorities law relating to establishing the energy stor-
    16  age  deployment  policy,  as  proposed  in  legislative bills numbers S.
    17  7318-A and A. 8921-A, takes effect.
