In 2016, the New York State Department of Public Service (DPS) issued Order 14-M-0224 enabling CCA Programs in New York State. DPS later required all Utilities to file a CCA tariff by August 5, 2016. In the critical path of launching a CCA Program on Long Island is a CCA Tariff (rules of operation) that must be adopted by LIPA, the current default supplier of electricity. The six Utilities serving NY City and upstate filed tariffs, LIPA did not.
The CCA Tariff specifies how aggregated and customer specific data is to be transferred between the Utility and the CCA Administrator. It specifies schedule, fees and the security required to protect customer information.
The proposed CCA Tariff is posted on the lipower.org website and the Board of Trustees will vote on whether to adopt at the May 20th meeting. Comments are being accepted through May 11th. The Town is encouraging residents to make their voices heard by clicking here
