     5  cle  for  the  purchase  and installation of a new qualified residential
     6  energy storage system by the taxpayer in his or her primary or secondary
     7  residence located in this state. The amount of the credit shall be twen-
     8  ty-five percent of the expenditure incurred in purchasing and installing
     9  a new qualified residential storage system, but not to exceed the  maxi-
    10  mum credit of seven thousand dollars.
    11    (2)  Energy storage device. An energy storage device is a commercially

    14  for indoor or outdoor use, and is manufactured by a manufacturer or sold
    15  by a distributor which has a battery return or recycling program.
    16    (3)  New  qualified residential energy storage system. A new qualified
    17  residential energy storage system is a system whose original  use  began
    18  with the taxpayer which is composed of an energy storage device or ener-
    19  gy storage devices that are connected to any new or existing solar elec-
    20  tric  generating  equipment,  as defined in paragraph (d) of subdivision
    21  one of section sixty-six-j of the public service law, fuel cell electric

     6  age  system  is  purchased and installed in a residence shared by two or
     7  more taxpayers, the amount of the credit allowable under this subsection
     8  for each such taxpayer shall be prorated according to the total expendi-
     9  ture for such system contributed by each taxpayer.

    15  exceed the taxpayer's tax for such  year,  such  excess  amount  may  be
    16  carried  over  to the five taxable years next following the taxable year
    17  with respect to which the credit is allowed and may be deducted from the
    18  taxpayer's tax for such year or years.
    19    § 2. This act shall take effect immediately, and shall  apply  to  the
    20  tax year in which it shall take effect and all subsequent tax years.
