Comments to New York on Electricity Rate Design

May 29, 2018

New York State is in the process of reforming its payment system for distributed energy resources (DERs), such as rooftop solar panels, away from a net energy metering policy that compensated these resources at retail electricity rates. Our comments to the New York Public Service Commission encourage the state to move towards rate designs that better reflect the underlying costs of generating, transmitting, and distributing electricity, including environmental externalities for all customers, including those who do not own DERs.

Our joint comments with other stakeholders also offer high-level principles for rate design that can help achieve the state’s clean energy goals.
