The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) has finalized the state's 2018 Comprehensive Energy Strategy (CES), and recommended doubling the Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) to 40% by 2030.
The new renewables goal is a significant step up and higher than previously considered. State law currently sets the RPS at 20%, and the draft CES released last year had suggested a smaller increase to 30%.
The proposal also includes a focus on grid modernization efforts and reliability, and developing new markets and funding sources for energy efficiency.
