Another state is turning to storage to try to green up its grid.

This time, it's Connecticut, which is offering incentives to cut the cost of buying and installing energy storage systems for the residential, commercial and industrial customers of its two electric distribution utilities, Eversource Energy and United Illuminating.

The incentives will be offered through a nine-year electric storage program that, fittingly enough, is called the Electric Storage Program and was developed to help the Nutmeg State meet its goal of deploying 1,000 MW of energy storage by the end of 2030.

The program will be administered by the Connecticut Green Bank, which administrates the state's Residential Solar Investment Program, Eversource and UI.
