Con Edison Proposes Changes to its Electric Tariff For its Commercial Demand Response Programs
Consolidated Edison Company of New York, Inc. (“Con Edison” or the “Company”) has filed with the New York State Public Service Commission (the “Commission”) proposed changes to its Schedule for Electricity Service, P.S.C. No. 10 – Electricity.
The Company proposes to combine Rider S – Commercial System Relief Program (“CSRP”) and Rider U – Distribution Load Relief Program (“DLRP”) into new Rider T - Commercial Demand Response Programs and to change CSRP and DLRP provisions. Changes to both programs include eliminating the Three-Year Incentive Payment, increasing reservation payments, and lowering the minimum kW of Load Relief to be provided by an Aggregator. CSRP changes include lowering the trigger for which the Company calls Planned Events, expanding the program to Westchester, and eliminating penalties. DLRP changes include making the payment structure more consistent with CSRP, based on the number of aggregate events called, and eliminating bonus payments.
The filing, which is subject to Commission review and approval, is proposed to become effective on December 27, 2015. Complete copies of the filing are available for inspection at the office of the Commission, 90 Church Street, 4th floor, New York, New York 10007, and at offices where applications for Con Edison service may be made. You can also view the filing on the Commission’s website at www.dps.ny.gov under Case 15-E-0570.
