NYSEG and Taitem Engineering Collaborate on Clean Energy Demonstration Project
Feb 3 16
NYSEG and Taitem Engineering of Ithaca are collaborating to develop details for a Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) demonstration project that will explore how the involvement and support of NYSEG can help communities meet their energy goals. The project, based in Tompkins County, seeks to leverage the value of NYSEG's involvement in the planning and promotion of distributed energy resources such as solar installations as well as energy efficiency projects. One area of focus for this project is to use NYSEG's communications channels to help customers understand their options for clean energy resources, such as solar installations, and to then connect interested customers with service providers. A possible outcome is for NYSEG to promote standardized solar packages with the intent of lowering the cost and complexity of installation for homeowners. Helping to develop community solar arrays is another possibility to service the needs of renters, low and moderate income families, and others. NYSEG and Taitem expect to have product offerings developed by mid-2016.
NYSEG and RG&E Announce Technology Partnership to Lower Connection Costs for Renewable Generation
Feb 1 16
NYSEG and RG &E, subsidiaries of AVANGRID, are preparing to roll out an innovative technology aimed at making it easier and more efficient for large-scale producers of renewable energy resources to connect to the electric power grid. The utilities' Flexible Interconnect Capacity Solution (FICS) demonstration project supports New York State's Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) initiative. NYSEG and RG &E are collaborating with Scottish technology firm Smarter Grid Solutions to test the new interconnect approach. NYSEG and RG &E will test Smarter Grid Solutions' Active Network Management (ANM) technology to help accommodate larger amounts of solar-generated electricity on the lower-voltage distribution electric delivery system without jeopardizing the safe and reliable operation of the grid. ANM can also support interconnection of wind, hydro and biomass/biogas generated electricity.
