Updates on Hosting Capacity in New York


The most recent stakeholder session was held on May 18, 2022. At the session, the utilities provided information on how to use the published Stage 1 Storage Hosting Capacity Maps and fielded questions about next steps. For the presentation slides, please click HERE

In 2021, the Joint Utilities held hosting capacity stakeholder sessions in May, August, November. The primary focus of these meeting was to continue discussing the development of hosting capacity maps for energy storage. 


Stage 3 Hosting Capacity Displays

The Joint Utilities, with guidance from stakeholders in the 2016 engagement group discussions, have developed a four staged Hosting Capacity implementation roadmap.  The most recent release, Stage 3, of the Hosting Capacity displays now includes sub-feeder level analysis of large scale solar PV systems interconnecting to distribution circuits. Each circuit’s hosting capacity is determined by evaluating the potential for power system criteria violations as a result of large PV solar systems interconnecting to three phase distribution lines with an AC nameplate rating greater than or equal to 300 kW interconnecting to three phase distribution lines. More information on the analysis criteria, assumptions, FAQs and relevant background can be found in this presentation.

The Joint Utilities have provided the following user demo as an additional reference to help guide users through the Stage 3 hosting capacity displays.
