The Distributed Electricity Backup Assets (DEBA) Program incentivizes the construction of cleaner and more efficient distributed energy assets that serve as on-call emergency supply or load reduction for the state’s electrical grid during extreme events. Projects that may be eligible for incentives include efficiency upgrades, maintenance, and capacity additions to existing power generators, as well as new zero- or low-emission technologies, including, but not limited to, fuel cells or energy storage, at existing or new facilities. All funding recipients under the program shall participate as an on-call emergency resource for the state during extreme events.
