Green Mountain Power is developing three projects to add 14.4 MW of solar and 6 MW of storage to its system.
A $200,000 state grant will support two solar-plus-storage projects aimed at better understanding storage potential.
The Ludington Pumped Storage Plant along Lake Michigan could play a bigger role on the grid as utilities use more variable renewables.
State regulators recently updated interconnection standards to streamline the process for most solar projects.
In Iowa, a state with some of the highest demand charges in the nation, a solar installer is offering a storage solution that the company claims could cut power bills in half for some large electricity customers.
