IPPNY Statement on Danskammer Energy Title V Permit Appeal

Albany, NY – Today, Danskammer Energy requested an appeal to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) on their decision to deny their Title V Permit for the Danskammer Energy Center located in Newburgh, New York. As part of the administrative review process, Danskammer has the right to appeal DEC’s decision.

IPPNY President and CEO Gavin J. Donohue said, “IPPNY Members support Danskammer Energy’s decision to appeal the DEC’s denial of its Title V Air Permit. As I stated when the decision was handed down last month, New York will need power options that can start up quickly and back up wind and solar in order to keep our lights on. There has been no firm guidance provided for how permit decisions will be made under the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act, and the DEC’s decision to deny seems largely subjective and bad policy. Danskammer provides New York with an opportunity to reduce emissions in the near-term and would assist New York in meeting its climate goals all while ensuring that New Yorkers aren’t left in the dark.”
