Colo. governor signs customer-sited energy storage bill

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper signed a bill directing regulators to adopt rules for installation, interconnection and use of customer-sited energy storage systems.

The governor on March 22 signed Senate Bill 18-009, which directs the state Public Utilities Commission to adopt rules so that consumers may install these systems without the burden of unnecessary regulations and discriminatory fees, according to a legislative summary of the bill.

The legislation also provides that utility approval processes for storage systems must be simple, streamlined and affordable and that utilities cannot require customer-sited meters to monitor these storage systems. It takes effect on Aug. 8.

The legislation is directed at Xcel Energy Inc. subsidiary Public Service Co. of Colorado and Black Hills Corp.'s Black Hills Colorado Electric Utility Co. LP d/b/a Black Hills Energy.

The legislature sent the bill to the governor on March 12 after both the Senate and House passed the measure by wide margins.

A total of 29 municipal utilities and 22 rural electric cooperatives also serve Coloradans, but the PUC does not regulate those nonprofit entities and the bill specifically excludes them.
