Liberty Utilities Home Battery Storage Pilot Approved

On January 19th the New Hampshire Public Utilities Commission (PUC) released an order approving a battery storage pilot program proposed by Liberty Utilities in 2017. 

According to the Press Release issued by Liberty Utilities, “The pilot program is the first of its kind in the United States to combine battery storage with time-of-use rates.” Also, “The home batteries will help Liberty Utilities reduce its overall demand for electricity during peaks and serve as back-up power to customers during a power outage. Reducing customer demand at peak times will reduce the cost of transmission. This is something all electric customers pay for, not only those participating in the program.” This is a very exciting opportunity for Lebanon residents. We would like to congratulate Liberty Utilities for proposing the project and receiving PUC approval, and City Councilor Clifton Below for representing the City in deliberations and helping to craft much of the program.  

The PUC order for the project can be found on their website. As far as a proposed start date for the Pilot, the approval from the PUC requires their review of the customer contract and the communications to explain time-of-use rates. Once that happens, it is our understanding that Liberty will begin signing up customers.
