As the New York State Senate and Assembly hold a joint hearing on the announced closure of the Indian Point Energy Center, the Independent Power Producers of New York (IPPNY) today released a fact sheet looking at the reliability impacts of the closure, as well as possible replacement options.
A.353-C (Ryan) / S.6005-A (Young) - AN ACT to authorize an easement on a portion of real property within the Boutwell Hill state forest in the county of Chautauqua for the location of electric collection or distribution facilities in connection with a wind powered electric generation project located in the towns of Charlotte and/or Cherry Creek; and providing for the repeal of such provisions upon expiration thereof
The Independent Power Producers of New York, Inc. (IPPNY) is a trade association representing companies involved in the development of electric generating facilities, the generation, sale, and marketing of electric power, and the development of natural gas facilities in the State of New York. IPPNY represents almost 75 percent of the electric generating capacity in New York, such as renewable energy resources that include wind energy.
The Independent Power Producers of New York (IPPNY) support Governor Cuomo's goal to create a Clean Energy Standard. A workable Clean Energy Standard must be structured in a comprehensive and inclusive manner. IPPNY calls upon the state Public Service Commission (PSC) to issue a proposal which attracts private investments and avoids passing costs directly onto ratepayers. IPPNY's ultimate level of support will be determined by the extent to which the PSC's proposal is equitable, prioritizes system reliability, protects consumers from unwarranted charges, and adheres to sound market principles.
