The Independent Power Producers of New York, Inc. (IPPNY) and its Members appreciate the New York State Senate's commitment to environmental protection. As you begin finalizing budget negotiations on the 2015-2016 State Budget, I strongly urge you to reject the Executive Budget's proposal to transfer up to $36 million in monies under the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) to the State General Fund (Section 20 of Part P of S.2005 / A.3005 - Article VII Budget Bill - Public Protection and General Government). Of this amount, $13 million would be used for the Environmental Protection Fund (EPF), and $23 million would support clean energy related tax credits.

The Independent Power Producers of New York, Inc. (IPPNY) and its Members appreciate the New York State Senate's efforts to control costs faced by the State's businesses and residents, especially those related to energy prices here in New York, while at the same time seeking to improve the economy and to create and retain jobs. As you begin finalizing budget negotiations on the 2015-2016 State Budget, I strongly urge you to reject the Executive Budget's proposal to increase fees for facilities (including energy facilities) that are regulated: (1) by the Operating Permit Program under Title V of the Federal Clean Air Act and by the State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) Program (both in Part Y of S.2008 / A.3008 - Article VII Budget Bill for Transportation, Economic Development and Environmental Conservation); as well as (2) by a license fee for major oil storage facilities (including dual-fuel power plants) under the Environmental Protection and Spill Compensation Fund (Part X of S.2008 / A.3008). Also, the Title V and SPDES proposed fee increases would take effect retroactively on January 1, 2015 in an unfair manner.

I am writing an addendum to Larry Rulison's article "Grid study power play," Jan. 28, on Gov. Andrew Cuomo's proposal to have the Public Service Commission conduct a formal review of the New York Independent System Operator.

As the Environmental Protection Agency reviews its Clean Power Plan for decreasing carbon dioxide emissions from existing power plants, it must recognize the great strides New York has already made. While the goal is laudable, the plan as currently proposed is unreasonable and would place New York at a competitive disadvantage to other states.

Senator Charles Schumer's proposed legislation to hamstring the proper functioning of New York's energy markets undermines current and future investment in the State and jeopardizes system reliability. The Senator is wrongly attempting to defund the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (FERC) oversight of the State's Lower Hudson Valley capacity zone, which was appropriately adopted to ensure adequate generating resources are available to provide energy to the part of the State with the highest energy demands.
