Energy Storage Request for Proposals

We aim to facilitate the deployment of energy storage systems within Con Edison’s service territory on company-controlled properties to create a more resilient, efficient, sustainable, and affordable energy grid. These projects contribute towards New York State’s goal of deploying more than 3 GW of energy storage by 2030.

Fox Hills Project

We are seeking to procure an energy storage system and associated performance contract for our Fox Hills substation on Staten Island.


The energy storage system must have a power rating of minimum 7.5 MW and it must be able to sustain four hours of discharge at the rated power level throughout the 10 years of operation based on the use cases given in the RFP.

Con Edison will prepare the site and do the civil and electrical construction work to accommodate the energy storage modules according to vendor requirements. Con Edison will also facilitate the interconnection and market operations.

Application Deadline

Proposals due from qualified respondents: October 31, 2020

How to Apply

Please refer to the following guides and submit the required documentation:

Nevins Street Make Ready Project

We are interested in proposals from parties who can build, own, and operate energy-storage facilities in Brooklyn load pockets.

We want to empower the energy storage market by converting vacant, company-owned properties into energy storage facilities. By providing electrical infrastructure, we aim to lower interconnection hurdles and offset costs.

As part of the Make-Ready EV Infrastructure Program, we are also allocating space and electrical interconnection on this site for vendors that want to install and operate electric vehicle chargers.

Con Edison will receive a monthly, quarterly, or annual lease payments from the respondent for the Make-Ready site according to the New York State Public Service Commission Section 70 requirements. The contract must be approved by the Public Service Commission through a section 70 filing before it is finalized.


The power rating of the energy storage system should be up to 10MW with an energy rating of at least 40MWh. The actual energy rating will depend on the design of the vendor’s energy storage system and the need to fit in the assigned space, while adhering to all applicable local, state, and federal rules, regulations, and laws.

The installed storage system will have a limited planned tenure on Con Edison property from the summer period of 2021 to 2030. After 2030, Con Edison will require the removal and safe disposal of the system, or we may consider extending the contract, purchasing the system, and/or expanding the system.

Con Edison will prepare the site under the Make-Ready model, and:

  • Do the civil and electrical construction work to accommodate the energy storage modules according to vendor requirements.
  • Facilitate the connection to the secondary side of the electrical connection.
  • Provide a New York Independent System Operator (NYISO) utility-grade meter for integration with the NYISO electricity markets. It will be up to the respondent to establish an agreement directly with NYISO

Application Deadline
