Texas ALJ Recommends Approving AEP Texas Application To Install, Own Battery Storage

ALJ Finds Utility Battery Not Competitive Service, Nor Generation; Treatment As UFE OK

Stresses Issues Amount To Policy Choices, Says PUCT May Reach Different Conclusion Based On Record

A Texas ALJ in a proposal for decision would conclude that AEP Texas' application to install two battery storage facilities on its distribution grid would not constitute a competitive service nor would it constitute utility ownership of generation, and the ALJ recommends approval of AEP Texas' application. However, while the ALJ found, "no insurmountable statutory or regulatory prohibitions," that would foreclose approval of the application, the ALJ said that many of the issues are one of policy, and the Commission may itself determine that policy considerations do not favor approval of the application as proposed.
