The Vermont Legislature passed Act 53 in 2017, which required the Department of Public Service to submit a report on energy storage to the Legislature by November 15 (see Sec. 22). The report covers the costs and benefits of energy storage as well as recommendations for how to encourage the deployment and integration of energy storage for the Legislature and other stakeholders to consider.
VPIRG submitted initial comments on the content of the report, as well as additional comments on the public draft of the report. Links to those comments can be found below, along with a link to the final report:
