New York -- New York is planning a big energy reform that has some nervous.
The state Public Service Commission has approved a test period with New York's six investor-owned utilities to test a consumer-driven power market. This plan would morph the utilities into hybrid roles as distribution grid operators that use their networks to deliver power to consumers from solar, storage batteries, microgrids, and wind farms.
The work is expected to extend well into the next decade.
Utilities are hoping that their customers will be interested in this green plan. The goal is to have an eco-friendly, cheaper power without jeopardizing electric reliability.
