For New York City to achieve its climate and clean energy goals in the most cost-effective way, a diverse and growing coalition of major labor, business and environmental groups are today urging Mayor Bill de Blasio to issue a new competitive Request for Proposals (“RFP”) to meet the City’s renewable electricity needs. The groups’ call for an RFP comes in the wake of the Mayor’s announcement that the City would seek a contract for Canadian hydropower by the end of 2020 and, more recently, its interest in providing public financing to construct a new transmission line, the Champlain Hudson Power Express (“CHPE”) from Quebec to New York City. The CHPE line is estimated to cost in excess of $3 billion.
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.”
