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.

Albany, N.Y. 10/28/15 - Assemblyman James Brennan's efforts to undermine New York's competitive wholesale electricity markets to the detriment of consumers have once again failed. For the second time in as many years, the Secretary to the New York Public Service Commission (PSC) has denied the Assemblyman access to confidential power sector financial and operating data redacted from annual reports which generation owners are required to provide to the PSC. The Secretary's decision protects the integrity of competitive markets and the consumers that benefit from the proper functioning of those markets.

Albany, N.Y. - The Independent Power Producers of New York, Inc. (IPPNY) today presented testimony before the New York State Assembly Committee on Energy on the future of renewable energy development programs in New York once the Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) expires at year's end.

Albany, N.Y. - The Independent Power Producers of New York, Inc. (IPPNY), the Alliance for a Clean Energy New York (ACENY), the Electric Power Supply Association (EPSA) and the New York Affordable Reliable Electricity Alliance (NY AREA) call upon the New York Public Service Commission (PSC) to reject the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority's (NYSERDA) proposal to allow utility ownership of large-scale renewable energy projects. Fifteen years ago, New York made a revolutionary move away from a vertical market power structure where private investors could not compete with utility projects whose costs are guaranteed by captive ratepayers. IPPNY strongly opposes NYSERDA's proposal as it would be a major step backward from years of PSC policy protecting ratepayers by supporting robust competitive electricity markets through the prohibition of utility-owned generation facilities.
