2013 State Energy Plan
Transmission and Distribution Systems Reliability Study and Report
New York State Energy Law Section 6-108 directs the Energy Planning Board to “undertake a study of the overall reliability of the State’s electric transmission and distribution system” and “prepare a report on such study’s findings and legislative recommendations” on or before September 1, 2012.
Maintaining system reliability is a continuous effort and is a process as dynamic as system conditions change. The New York State Transmission and Distribution Systems Reliability Study and Report [PDF] provides a broad overview of the current electric transmission and distribution system and the many processes and activities that comprise the oversight of the electric system to ensure that reliable energy services are provided to all consumers in the State.
