  • Who We Are
    IPPNY is a trade association representing companies in the competitive power supply industry in New York State.
  • Did you know?
    Power producers are selling electricity to utility companies at a record low. So why aren't you seeing a big decrease in your electric bill? Because electricity is not all you're paying for. Find out what goes into your electric bill now!


IPPNY's mission is to assist our member companies in becoming the premier providers of electricity in New York State.


New York State Senate Minority Leader John J. Flanagan has appointed Independent Power Producers of New York (IPPNY) President and CEO Gavin J. Donohue to the New York State Climate Action Council, a 22-member body currently being assembled under the recently-enacted New York State Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA). The new law requires 70 percent of New York’s electricity to come from renewable energy systems by 2030, the power sector to be zero-emitting by 2040, and statewide greenhouse gas emissions to decrease by 85 percent from 1990 levels by 2050.
IPPNY President and CEO Gavin J. Donohue said, “Reaching the State’s ambitious goals will require unprecedented levels of investment in the electric system and near-complete electrification of the transportation, residential and commercial sectors. New investment will be needed in renewables, transmission, energy storage, and, most critically, power generation capable of providing reliable and dispatchable electric service during extended periods where the wind does not blow and the sun does not shine. Independent power producers look forward to working with the State to improve upon the existing competitive market structure and develop new mechanisms for attracting such investments.”
The New York State Senate late last night passed the New York State Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA), and the Assembly is poised to act today. This legislation was developed with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, requiring 70 percent of New York’s electricity to come from renewable energy systems by 2030 and the power sector to be zero-emitting by 2040. Importantly, the legislation allows some flexibility for the New York State Public Service Commission (PSC) to maintain electric system reliability, and it requires a yet-to-be-formed Climate Action Council to consult with the New York Independent System Operator (NYISO), which is the entity tasked with maintaining electric system reliability.
