                                                                   LBD03667-07-3

        S. 1186--B                          2
 
     1    e.  that  such  products are life-cycle cost-effective and practicable
     2  and where the relevant product's utility and performance are not compro-
     3  mised as a result.
     4    §  2.  Paragraph  (a) of subdivision 2 of section 16-106 of the energy
     5  law, as added by chapter 431 of the laws of 2005, is amended to read  as
     6  follows:
     7    (a)  On  or  before [June thirtieth, two thousand six] January thirty-

     8  first, two thousand fourteen, the secretary, in  consultation  with  the
     9  president,  shall adopt regulations in accordance with the provisions of
    10  this article establishing: (i) energy efficiency  performance  standards
    11  for new products of the types set forth in paragraphs (a) through (n) of
    12  subdivision one of section 16-104 of this article, with the exception of
    13  such  [paragraph] paragraphs (e) (consumer audio and video products) and
    14  (g) (incandescent reflector lamps);  (ii)  procedures  for  testing  the
    15  energy  efficiency of the products covered by paragraphs (a) through (n)
    16  of subdivision one of section 16-104 of this article;  (iii)  procedures
    17  for  manufacturers  to  certify that products covered under this article
    18  meet the energy efficiency standards to be promulgated under this  arti-

    19  cle; and (iv) such further matters as are necessary to insure the proper
    20  implementation  and enforcement of the provisions of this article.  With
    21  respect to consumer audio, video and  information  technology  products,
    22  included  in  subdivision  nine of section one hundred sixty-five of the
    23  state finance law, the secretary, in consultation  with  the  president,
    24  shall  conduct a study to determine whether an energy performance stand-
    25  ard for such product should be established, taking into account  factors
    26  including but not limited to, the potential impact on electricity usage,
    27  product  availability,  manufacturing  cost, innovation, product conver-
    28  gence, product features and function,  and  consumer  and  environmental

    29  benefits.  Based on the recommendations of such study, the secretary, in
    30  consultation with the president, may  adopt  regulations  in  accordance
    31  with  the  provisions  of  this  article establishing energy performance
    32  standards for such products on or before January thirty-first, two thou-
    33  sand fourteen. With respect to incandescent reflector lamps, included in
    34  paragraph (g) of subdivision one of section 16-104 of this article,  the
    35  secretary,  in consultation with the president, shall conduct a study to
    36  determine whether an energy efficiency  performance  standard  for  such
    37  product should be established, taking into account factors including the
    38  potential impact on electricity usage, product availability and consumer
    39  and environmental benefits. If it is determined based on this study that

    40  such  a  standard  would reduce energy use and would not be preempted by
    41  the federal law, the secretary,  in  consultation  with  the  president,
    42  shall  adopt regulations in accordance with the provisions of this arti-
    43  cle establishing energy performance standards for  such  product  on  or
    44  before January first, two thousand eight.
    45    §  3.  This act shall take effect immediately; provided, however, that
    46  no energy efficiency performance standard shall become effective  for  a
    47  product  less  than one hundred eighty days after such energy efficiency
    48  performance standard shall become final.
