Acadia Center and RGGI Advocates Coalition Partners Submitted Comments for the RGGI Third Program Review


Acadia Center’s Reply Comments on DPU 21-80, 21-81, 21-82

Acadia Center’s reply comments focused on the joint proposal by National Grid, Eversource, and Unitil.

Acadia Center believes the performance metrics proposed in the joint proposal offer a useful, but relatively limited, starting point in thinking about how best to track progress in the Companies’ grid modernization investments. We recommends that the DPU identify specific performance targets for many of the metrics that are currently listed as N/A in the joint proposal, or to identify a timeline for implementing targets after sufficient data has been collected. Acadia Center also strongly agrees with the statement from the Attorney General’s Office that the Department should “direct the Companies to develop and propose performance metrics that measure whether customers are actually receiving the projected benefits from the Companies’ grid-facing investments.

Acadia Center’s Comments on Performance Metrics in DPU 21-80 through 21-82, Grid Modernization and Advanced Metering Infrastructure Plans

DPU 21-80, 21-81, 21-82 Grid Modernization Performance Metrics_Acadia Center April 2023

Acadia Center filed written comments concerning performance metrics related to the 2022-2025 Grid Modernization Plans and Advanced Metering Infrastructure investment plans filed by Eversource Energy, National Grid, and Unitil in D.P.U. 21-80, D.P.U. 21-81, and D.P.U. 21-82, respectively. Acadia Center’s priority in proposing performance metrics is to ensure that the projected benefits of grid modernization and AMI deployment are being realized for ratepayers. In general, Acadia Center recommends that the Department not only approve performance metrics that track and measure activities and outputs, but instead implement metrics that are outcomes-based and are explicitly aimed at supporting the Department’s three grid modernization objectives. Moreover, Acadia Center urges the Department not only to implement basic performance metrics but also to consider financial penalties for underperformance where appropriate.
