Through Non-Wires Alternatives (NWAs) initiatives, utilities procure distributed energy resources (DERs) and other non-traditional resources to defer or avoid conventional infrastructure investments. Furthermore, in many cases DER procurement can lower costs, including the elimination for the need to invest in transmission and distribution infrastructure upgrades. They will also often time lower emissions while maintaining or potentially improving system reliability. NWA procurements present an opportunity for DER developers/stakeholders to respond to RFP/RFI filed by a New York utility. Responses should be sent directly to the utility and not REV Connect. The NY utilities involved in this initiative include Central Hudson, Con Edison, Orange & Rockland, National Grid, New York State Electric & Gas, and Rochester Gas & Electric. As of June 2017, New York leads in the U.S. in NWA activity.
