Fiscal Detail and Notes
This bill directs the Governor's Energy Office (GEO) to evaluate designs for and recommend a program to procure commercially available utility-scale energy storage systems connected to the transmission and distribution systems and to study and report findings on long-duration energy storage. The bill allows the GEO to request up to $300,000 from the Public Utilities Commission Reimbursement Fund for expenditures related to these directives. Any additional costs to the Public Utilities Commission from the provisions of this bill are expected to be minor and can be absorbed within existing budgeted resources.
