New York PSC Staff issues whitepaper on DER oversight

NY PSC Staff issued a whitepaper proposing an updated model for DER oversight. Amongst its recommendations, Staff includes requirements for the relationship between DERs and end use customers, as well as requirements applicable to the relationship between DERs and DSPs, proposing draft Uniform Business Practices. The whitepaper focuses on certain aspects of the original staff proposal, while soliciting additional comments on both that proposal and the new whitepaper, including regulation and contractual agreements, interconnection agreements and tariffs, eligibility requirements, as well as the rights and responsibilities of DERs.
