     1  to  the public service law, the public authorities law, and/or the state
     2  administrative procedure act, the public service commission, in  consul-
     3  tation  with the New York state energy research and development authori-
     4  ty,  shall adopt a program within one year of the effective date of this
     5  section to provide support to and for eligible renewable  hydrogen  and,
     6  at  a  greater  rate,  eligible  curtailed renewable hydrogen, through a
     7  proceeding to engage stakeholders in order to  design  and  implement  a
     8  competitive  program  for eligible renewable hydrogen production for the
     9  purpose of meeting the state's clean  energy  and  greenhouse  emissions
    10  reductions targets. The program shall require:
    11    1.  administration  by the New York state energy research and develop-
    12  ment authority;
    13    2. a diversity of project sizes, geographic distribution, and  partic-
    14  ipation  among customer classes, subject to cost-effectiveness consider-
    15  ations;
    16    3. incentive or financing structures that maximize  cost-effectiveness
    17  and  practicality  through  competitive  procurements,  standing-offers,
    18  production incentives or capacity incentives at the wholesale or  retail
    19  level as, in the judgment of the commission, provide for the most effec-
    20  tive program;
    21    4. program designs that take into consideration the avoidance of long-
    22  term  costs to the transmission and distribution system and minimization
    23  of peak load in constrained areas;
    24    5. annual  reports  on  the  achievements  and  effectiveness  of  the
    25  program; and
    26    6. such other issues deemed appropriate by the commission.
    27    § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
