In accordance with Ordering Paragraph 11 of Decision (D.) 17-04-039, Southern California Edison is convening a working group to focus on identifying issues to reduce barriers to Community Energy Storage (Working Group) via this notice to the service list of the Energy Storage Track II Rulemaking (R.) 15-03-011.
The objective of the Working Group is to identify issues that must be addressed to reduce barriers to the provision of storage services to local customers, including those in disadvantaged and low-income communities, via installation of storage in front of the meter. The Working Group will prepare a summary of the issues, and note any consensus that is reached to resolve the issues identified, and transmit a Working Group report no later than October 15, 2017.
At this time, the Working Group plans to hold two in-person meetings, and additional meetings via webinar / phone on an as needed basis.
The first in person meeting will be held at 10:00 AM on July 28, 2017, in the Opera Plaza Community Room, located at 601 Van Ness Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94102 (Mezzanine Level). The second in-person meeting will take place on September 13, 2017 in the same location.
Please email Marissa Blunschi at Marissa.Blunschi@sce.com no later than July 10, 2017 to confirm your interest in participating in the Working Group. Please be sure to provide your full name, the name of your organization and your contact information in your response.
Further details, including specific schedules, agenda items, and meeting materials will be distributed to members of the Working Group, as they become available. SCE also plans to send out a survey to participants prior to the first meeting, in order to gather initial feedback from stakeholders that will help to guide our discussion at our initial meeting.
