The New York Public Service Commission (PSC) Reforming the Energy Vision proceeding (Case 14-M-0101) aims to reorient the state’s electric industry and ratemaking structure toward a more consumer-centered digital economy. On February 26, 2015, the PSC issued an order adopting a regulatory policy framework for utilities to develop a new Distributed System Platform (DSP). The DSP is “an intelligent network platform that will provide safe, reliable and efficient electric services by integrating diverse resources to meet customers’ and society’s evolving needs.” A new electric distribution system platform will allow distributed energy resources such as solar energy, wind energy, storage, and demand response to more widely benefit customers and the grid.CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD THE POLICY PRIMER
