Please join the New York Association for Energy Economics when we welcome Dana Hall, an attorney with The Law Offices of Dana Hall, LLC to our Thursday, November 8th, 2018 lunch.
Dana Hall will speak about community renewable energy programs in New York and New Jersey. On October 1, 2018, the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities proposed rules establishing a three-year Community Solar Energy Pilot Program which allows utility customers to participate in a solar project that is not physically attached to their property, but within the same service territory. In 2015, the New York Public Service Commission first issued orders that established New York’s Community Distributed Generation (CDG) Program, designed to expand customer options for accessing clean distributed generation. When first implemented, the CDG program utilized net energy metering as the means to provide access to DG by retail electricity customers, but in 2017 transitioned the program to the “Value Stack.” Both programs involve a host who owns or operates the renewable source and interacts with the utility; and subscribers, who accept credits on their electric bill. This presentation will focus on the mechanics of each of these programs and how they are structured, including their economics.
