Posted May 2, 2024

The Con Edison Non-Wires Solutions (NWS) team has extended the deadline for our Brooklyn and Queens Energy Storage Incentive for Behind the Meter (BTM) Load Following projects. The Application deadline has been extended from April 30th, 2024, to September 30th, 2024. This is for Load Following projects only. The Grid Connected or Front of the Meter (FTM) segment of this incentive has been fully allocated and is now closed.

The incentive rate is $3,000/kW for load following systems that do not require system reinforcements and are used to reduce building load. This Program is designed to encourage systems that will provide direct benefits to customers through demand charge management and can be expeditiously operational without the need for substantive customer interconnection upgrades. The BQDM program offers incentives to customers in eligible Brooklyn and Queens neighborhoods for battery energy storage projects which provide load relief during peak demand periods.

Con Edison is seeking BESS projects that are installed and available for operation no later than May 1, 2026. The application period for this initial offering will be open through September 30, 2024 or until Con Edison reaches the enrollment capacity for the Program. Applications will be reviewed, evaluated, and accepted on a rolling, first-come, first-served basis following a project’s completion of Coordinated Electric System Interconnection Review (“CESIR”) study and successful payment of at least 25% of interconnection costs.

The Company will only review submitted applications completed in full that meet all pre-requisites for application including, but not limited to: submission of a complete interconnection application through the Power Clerk web portal, and paying 25% of interconnection costs for the option that meets the local reliability standard of the area in which the project is interconnecting.
