SB 943 relates to the classification, use, and regulation of electric energy storage equipment or facilities when transacting in the wholesale market. The bill provides that when energy storage equipment or facilities are being used to transact in the wholesale market, it must register as a PGC (Power Generation Company) with the Public Utility Commission of Texas and clarifies that energy storage is afforded all the same interconnection rights as any other generation asset that is allowed to interconnect, obtain transmission service, and participate in electricity markets. The bill does not address the use of energy storage as a transmission asset.
