The Independent Power Producers of New York's mission is to assist its member companies in becoming the premier providers of electricity in New York State.
Albany, N.Y., 11/14/13 - The Independent Power Producers of New York, Inc. (IPPNY) has told the state's Public Service Commission (PSC) that New York should not be in the business of using New York ratepayer funds to subsidize Canadian government-owned power resources - an act that would put at risk the environmental and economic benefits provided by existing and new renewable resources here in New York. In its comments submitted to the PSC this week on the Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) 2013 Review documents, IPPNY opposed H.Q. Energy Services U.S. Inc.'s proposal for New York State incentives to subsidize the Canadian Government's hydroelectric plants for the likely importation of this power into New York over the yet-to-be-built Champlain Hudson Power Express (CHPE) merchant transmission line to link Quebec, Canada with New York City.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Electric Power Supply Association President and CEO John E. Shelk issued the following statement today in light of media reports and blog postings suggesting that “demand response” deserves the credit for meeting customer needs during the recent heat wave in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic:
“Make no mistake about it, the lights stayed on and air conditioners kept running for tens of millions of customers in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic because of the hard work and dedication of the plant employees at competitively-owned power plants and at the grid operators in ISO New England, the New York Independent System Operator, and the PJM Interconnection.
Independent Power Producers of New York, Inc. (IPPNY) commends Governor Andrew M. Cuomo for his nomination of Diane Burman to the New York Public Service Commission (PSC). IPPNY also congratulates Ms. Burman, whose many years of experience in state operations as Counsel at the PSC and the NYS Senate will make her another welcome addition to the PSC, along with Audrey Zibelman who was confirmed as a new Commissioner earlier this week.
