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. 9/23/15 - The Independent Power Producers of New York, Inc. (IPPNY) welcomed distinguished guests to IPPNY's 30th Annual Fall Conference - Power Source: Evolution of Energy Policies and Emerging Technologies. The conference featured presentations by top New York energy officials and panel discussions on the State's Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) proceeding as well as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Clean Power Plan. A clear and consistent theme developed among the speakers - competitive markets have been and should continue to be the engine by which State and federal public policy goals are met.

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. IPPNY's Members strongly believe that the future success of renewables in New York largely hinges on the degree to which market signals and competition between private power producers determine investment.

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.

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.
