 AN ACT to require the public service commission to  develop  recommenda-
   tions regarding the establishment of microgrids
 
   THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

   Section 1. Notwithstanding the provisions of any general,  special  or
 local  law  to the contrary, the public service commission, in consulta-
 tion with the division of  homeland  security  and  emergency  services,
 shall  develop recommendations regarding the establishment of microgrids
 in the state of New York. For purposes of this act, the term "microgrid"
 shall mean a  group  of  interconnected  loads  and  distributed  energy
 resources  within  clearly  defined electrical boundaries that acts as a
 single controllable entity with respect to the grid and can connect  and
 disconnect  from the grid to enable it to operate in both grid-connected
 or island-mode.  Specifically, the commission shall develop  recommenda-
 tions which include, but are not limited to, the following:
   (a)  Whether  microgrids  should  be  established  at hospitals, first
 responder headquarters, such as  police  and  fire  stations,  emergency
 shelters,  schools, water filtration plants, sewage treatment plants and
 other locations in the state of New York;
   (b) The geographic areas in the state of New York where the establish-
 ment of such microgrids should be a priority, based  upon  severe  storm
 damage during the two years prior to the effective date of this act; and
   (c)  Funding  mechanisms that should be considered in order to pay for
 the establishment of such microgrids.
   § 2. The commission shall submit a final report of recommendations  to
 the  governor,  the temporary president of the senate and the speaker of
 the assembly within one year after the effective date of this act.
   § 3. This act shall take effect immediately.
