Today, the Independent Power Producers of New York (IPPNY), the New York State AFL-CIO, and the New York State Building and Construction Trades Council filed a joint petition with the New York State Public Service Commission (PSC), urging the Commission to establish a program to encourage the development of zero-emission dispatchable energy systems and to develop a market for these resources, in order to meet the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act’s (CLCPA) requirement of having a zero-emitting statewide electrical demand system by 2040 (100 by 40 target) while maintaining electric system reliability.

The Climate and Community Investment Act (CCIA) shines an important light on environmental justice, expanding New York’s green economy and providing opportunities for communities most impacted by the effects of climate change. However, as currently presented, the legislation needs to be improved. Dialogue like today’s roundtable provides essential feedback to shape and improve New York’s nation-leading climate and energy policies.

IPPNY supports S.7027 (Parker). This bill would require the Public Service Commission (PSC) to remedy its Competitive Tier 2 Program for existing eligible renewable energy facilities so it is structured in a way that best ensures the ongoing benefits of those facilities for New York State and the economies of their host communities.

IPPNY President and CEO Gavin Donohue has a new op-ed up on amNY this week looking at the need for dispatchable resources as we build the grid of the future. There has been vocal opposition to peaking units in New York City lately, but as the grid becomes more renewable-heavy, these units will provide a critical backup to ensure we keep the lights on.

IPPNY opposes S.5939-A (Ramos) / A.6761-A (Mamdani). This legislation would prohibit the New York State Board on Electric Generation Siting and the Environment from issuing a certificate of environmental compatibility and public need under Article 10 of the Public Service Law (the State’s power plant siting law) for fossil fuel-powered facilities unless a written attestation and demonstration is provided that an existing reliability need cannot be met with any combination of transmission upgrades, energy storage, zero carbon electric generation, demand response, and/or energy efficiency.

As a member of the Climate Action Council charged with implementing the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA), I appreciate the opportunity to continue the necessary dialogue to ensure we are implementing this legislation effectively. The effects of climate change are well understood, and addressing those impacts, while transitioning New York to a new energy future, is important. IPPNY actively supports a move to a more efficient electric system in a way that maintains the reliability of our grid and makes sure consumers are not met with significant financial burden.
