The New York State Public Service Commission (PSC) commenced its Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) initiative to reform New York State’s energy industry and regulatory practices.
This initiative will lead to regulatory changes that promote more efficient use of energy, deeper penetration of renewable energy resources such as wind and solar, along with wider deployment of “distributed” energy resources such as microgrids, on-site power supplies and storage.
It will also promote greater use of advanced energy management products to enhance demand elasticity and efficiencies. These changes, in turn, will empower customers by allowing them more choice in how they manage and consume electric energy.
