Consolidated Edison announced the filing of new electric and natural gas rate cases with the PSC
Under the plan, the Company intends to develop six
energy storage facilities on Company locations. Second,
the Company will develop one turn-key make-ready site for
third-party storage developer
The two project approach will provide approximately 41.5 MW of load relief and up to 160 MWh of energy for discharge. In total, the Company's six facilities will provide 31.5 MW and 120 MWh. The third-party-owned system will provide up to 10 MW and 40 MWh.
The Company is seeking to recover all development and implementation costs of the six utility-owned storage assets as a Company-owned asset
ConEd said that the filing also includes:
• Building infrastructure for publicly available quick vehicle chargers. The chargers would provide a cumulative total of 30 megawatts (MW), enough for about 64,000 electric vehicles.
• Continuing a reliance on non-wire solutions – meaning working with customers to help them use less power while still having the heating, lighting and cooling they need. This approach helps the company avoid or defer building infrastructure.
• Programs that pay customers who make upgrades to HVAC, lighting, appliances and other equipment. These upgrades reduce the amount of power flowing on the grid and emissions into the air.
