Memorandum in Support of Cross-Utility Crediting
May 16, 2019
Cross-utility crediting can unlock immense residential and commercial customer demand for community solar in New York City and the surrounding suburbs, which today have very limited site-development potential for solar. The Public Service Commission can solve this problem. Authorizing the transfer of community solar bill credits across utilities will help connect the immense consumer demand from the New York City area with the land resources, workforce, and affordable development costs upstate. The Commission can create a winning solution for all of New York’s consumers, workers, economy, and environment. For all these reasons, NYSEIA supports A.7286 (Cusick) / S.5627 (Parker) and urges its prompt passage.
