PSD Seeks Proposals from Distribution Utilities for Energy Storage Access Program

Electric distribution utilities are invited to submit proposals for the Energy Storage Access Program (ESAP).

The program will (1) support installation of battery electric storage systems at low- and moderate-income Vermont homes to support their resilience as well as to lower costs for utility ratepayers, (2) support the acquisition by municipal and cooperative utilities of storage management, flexible load management, and/or distributed energy resource management software solutions to manage both batteries and other electric loads; and, (3) support installation of battery electric storage systems at municipal buildings to support community resilience and lower costs for utility ratepayers.

Complete details are found in the Request for Proposals [PDF]. The submission deadline has been extended to July 5, 2023. 

Responses to questions and updates to the RFP, if needed, will be posted on this webpage.
