NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A5105
 
SPONSOR: Colton (MS)
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the energy law, in relation to establishing a one hundred percent energy system by two thousand thirty-two   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To establish a goal of achieving a one hundred percent clean energy system by two thousand thirty two, with zero net greenhouse gas emis- sions.   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1. Subdivision 1 of section 6-104 of the energy law, as added by chapter 433 of the laws of 2009, is amended. Section 1. Paragraph (a) of subsection 1 of 6-104 establishes and details the plan, including the goal, the discontinuance of nuclear power by two thousand thirty two, divestments, requirement of details for set goals, and other measures for meeting goals. Section 1. Paragraph (b) of section subsection 1 of 6-104 relates to the use of fossil fuels, natural gas, oil, and petroleum products, and their implementation with regards to the extent by which they are incorporate the discontinued use of such fuels by two thousand thirty two. Section 1. Paragraph (c) establishes precedence. Section 2. The effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: Given the growing threat of global anthropogenic climate change and the impacts that current energy systems have in contributing to this issue, the state must take a stand in stopping our contribution to global anthropogenic climate change. This bill would allow for this by estab- lishing a goal of achieving a one hundred percent clean energy system by two thousand thirty two, with zero net greenhouse emissions. Currently, over seventy groups have called for the requirement for New York State to transition to 100% clean energy by 2030, including the Green Educa- tion and Legal Fund, amongst many organizations throughout the state. This bill builds upon the Jacobson wind, water and solar (WWS) study by Stanford and Cornell Professors, among others. The WWS study shows that it is hundred percent clean renewable energy systems by two thousand thirty two. It would also incorporate measured related to reduction in energy use, increased energy conservation, and improvements in energy efficiency.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect on the first of January next succeeding the date upon which it shall become a law; provided, however, that effective immediately, the state energy planning board shall conduct a study to determine the measures necessary to achieve a one hundred percent clean energy system by two thousand thirty two.

     5    (i) establish a goal of achieving a one hundred percent  clean  energy
     6  system  by  two  thousand thirty-two, with zero net greenhouse gas emis-
     7  sions;
     8    (ii) provide for the discontinuance of nuclear power by  two  thousand
