The Connecticut Energy Storage Solutions Program launched January 1, 2022 to promote energy storage deployment. The program, available to all commercial and industrial (C&I) end users served by Eversource and United Illuminating (UI), offers an upfront deployment incentive and an ongoing performance incentive for new behind-the-meter energy storage systems. The energy storage systems can be standalone or paired with new or existing solar. The program requires all projects to be capable of providing backup power to the host site during outage events.
By enrolling customers in the Program, Stem can help you reduce your customers’ utility bills by greater than 20%. Sites with system sizes 1MWh+ and over 150kW of demand from 3-8pm are most likely to see savings. Fill out the form to work with Stem to improve the payback of your systems and help the state reach its goal of 290MW of C&I-sited storage by 2030.
Program enrollment is open now. There are limited funds, so act quickly to secure your project timeline. The initial program will release funds for 50MW through December 31, 2024 for eligible C&I customers within Eversource or UI territory deploying new energy storage systems. The program will incentivize 290MW of C&I storage in total by 2030, with additional capacity opening after 2024.
Stem is a C&I storage leader that helps with all elements of adopting energy storage and enrolling in incentive programs like the Connecticut Energy Storage Solutions Program. We work with developer, off-taker, solar, and EPC partners to manage the process of designing, procuring equipment, deploying, and operating storage systems. We offer integrated, end-to-end support as you add storage to your standalone, community solar, or commercial behind-the-meter projects.
Featured Case Study:
MWRA provides wholesale water and sewer services to more than 3 million people in eastern and central Massachusetts. Stem deployed energy storage at two MWRA sites, a water pumping station and an administrative building, to lower energy costs, provide demand response, and contribute to state zero-emissions goals.Read More
