BILL NUMBER: A8902
 
SPONSOR: Skoufis
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to the operating permit program from sources subject to the federal Clean Air Act   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: Gas and Electricity corporations shall not authorize the start-up of a facility with any fuel other than the primary fuel.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: This bill would amend Section 1 Paragraph f of subdivision 3 of section 19-0311 of the environmental conservation law permitting process, as added by chapter 608 of the laws of 1993.   DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ORIGINAL AND AMENDED VERSION (IF APPLICABLE):   JUSTIFICATION: Currently, electricity generating facilities must submit permit applica- tions that identify the primary fuel source of the facility, as well as any alternative operating scenarios that may arise. These alternative operations occur in the rare instances when the primary power source of a facility does not meet sufficient energy needs. A generating facility should not start up operations using an alternative fuel source that is only meant as a back-up supply.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS:   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
