Adopted Part 222, Distributed Generation Sources and Part 200, General Provisions

On March 1, 2017, the Department's recently adopted 6 NYCRR Part 222 regulation was challenged in the Supreme Court of the County of Albany. As part of that litigation, the Petitioners-Plaintiffs are seeking a preliminary injunction. The parties have agreed to stay the implementation and enforcement of 6 NYCRR Part 222 (see Stipulation (PDF)), pending the Court's decision on Petitioners-Plaintiffs' request for a preliminary injunction. The Department will update this site when the Court issues a decision.

The Department recently adopted a new Part 222 "Distributed Generation Sources," to replace the rule previously adopted on November 1, 2016. The new rule addresses distributed generation (DG) sources, located in the New York City Metropolitan area, that are enrolled in demand response programs sponsored by the New York Independent System Operator or transmission utilities, as well as sources used during times when the cost of electricity supplied by utilities is high (defined separately in Part 222 as price-responsive generation sources.
