Gavin J. Donohue, President & CEO of the Independent Power Producers of New York, Inc. (IPPNY), said "IPPNY supports the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions from all sectors and the ongoing development of a fair and appropriate national program. New York already has seen significant environmental improvements from independent power producers over the last decade. We look forward to working with Governor Cuomo's Administration to ensure that the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative's allowance auction proceeds are invested further to reduce emissions from the power plant sector even more than the significant accomplishments to date through areas such as innovative carbon dioxide abatement methods and renewable and non-carbon dioxide emitting technologies."

Albany, NY 12/28/12 - Throughout the Article VII Transmission line siting proceeding at the Public Service Commission, the Independent Power Producers of New York, Inc. (IPPNY) established that the Champlain Hudson Power Express (CHPE) project is not needed for system reliability, does not address existing transmission constraints, is uneconomic (meaning its costs will exceed its anticipated benefits) and does not advance several important state policy goals, including creating in-state jobs and promoting in-state renewable resources. Through expert economic analysis, IPPNY clearly demonstrated that the project, if certified, will ultimately prove detrimental to New York's consumers and to the state as a whole.

The Independent Power Producers of New York, Inc. (IPPNY) today filed with the New York State Public Service Commission (PSC) its final brief in opposition to Champlain Hudson Power Express, Inc.'s (CHPE) application for a Certificate of Environmental Compatibility and Public Need to construct a proposed transmission line from Canada to New York City. During the Project's Article VII Transmission Line Siting proceeding at the PSC, IPPNY has demonstrated critical pitfalls concerning the economics of the Project and the associated risk to New York State residents and businesses. New York's energy marketplace simply cannot provide sufficient revenues to support the unneeded and uneconomic transmission line, meaning the Project would require significant subsidies to be built and become operational.

IPPNY strongly supports A.10530 (Morelle)/S.7391 (Maziarz). This bill would limit the use of eminent domain only to activities that achieve a public use, benefit or purpose that maximizes benefits to New York State. The legislation would prevent certain electric corporations from having the power of eminent domain: (1) those that seek, either through themselves or through one or more affiliated interests, to build or expand transmission lines connecting a location outside the territorial limits of the United States to a location within New York State and (2) those that seek, either through themselves or through one or more affiliated interests, to build or expand an electric generating facility outside the United States and to interconnect it to a location within the New York State.
