Today, the Independent Power Producers of New York (IPPNY) filed initial comments on the New York State Energy Research Development Authority’s (NYSERDA) petition for the Public Service Commission’s (PSC) review of proposed awards under Tier 4 of the Clean Energy Standard. NYSERDA’s petition requested the PSC’s approval of two contracts for the purchase of renewable energy credits under Tier 4 by NYSERDA from Clean Path New York LLC (CPNY) and the H.Q. Energy Services’ (HQUS) Champlain Hudson Power Express project to deliver renewable energy and reduce reliance on fossil fuel generation in New York City (Zone J).

IPPNY opposes S.5939-A (Ramos) / A.6761-A (Mamdani). As drafted, this bill may jeopardize the electric power supply reserve margins that are needed to maintain electric system reliability. Importantly, the New York Independent System Operator (NYISO), which is the entity in charge of maintaining reliability, repeatedly has indicated resource adequacy margins are tightening across the New York grid from Buffalo to Long Island, and reliability margins are thinning as soon as 2023. This looming reliability problem is further exacerbated by the requirements of Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA) for electrification of the State’s economic sectors, the growth of intermittent resources, and the lack of needed energy storage capability and of new transmission facilities. Additional reliable sources of electricity supply will be essential to support this massive increase in electricity demand.

IPPNY’s Gavin Donohue provided written feedback on an initial version of the Draft Scoping Plan and has issued a statement on the top tier issues within the draft Plan. In terms of areas of concern for which additional Council resolution is needed, the statement emphasizes the importance of having the finalized Plan ensure energy reliability and consumer affordability. The statement also commends the State for finally beginning a robust discussion of the NYISO’s carbon pricing proposal, upon which it long has been silent.

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.
