The Clear Peak Customary Begins to Take Form


The Massachusetts Division of Power Assets has launched its Clear Peak Customary Straw Proposal, offering its considering on the implementation of that a part of An Act to Advance Clear Power, from 2018.  As a reminder, the fundamental thought is {that a} “Certified RPS Useful resource,” put in after January 1, 2019, might acquire “clear peak certificates” for power generated throughout seasonal peaks.  Current Certified RPS Assets might acquire CPCs if they’re paired with battery storage put in after January 1, 2019.

Right here is DOER’s present place on a few of the necessary points to be resolved.

  • If current Certified RPS Assets search to pair with new battery storage, the storage should be at the least equal to 25% of the nameplate capability of the useful resource.
  • As soon as certified, all electrical energy delivered by the Certified RPS Useful resource could be eligible to acquire CPCs
  • DOER has proposed definitions of the height intervals for every season
  • Certified Assets will generate CPCs primarily based on the typical output throughout the peak interval on any specific day
  • There will likely be multipliers, proposed by DOER at 3X, throughout summer time and winter peaks.
  • DOER is proposing a separate, 15X multiplier, calculated after the very fact, primarily based on technology throughout the prior month’s precise peak hour
  • DOER is contemplating together with a “resilience multiplier,” however none is proposed within the Straw Proposal

There’s much more to the proposal than this abstract can encapsulate.  Feedback are due April 12, 2019.

It actually appears as if DOER is shifting ahead to fulfill its aim of promulgating the Clear Peak Customary by Q1 of 2020.  Simply one other state coverage for ISO-NE to include into the wholesale markets!
