BILL NUMBER: A1466
 
SPONSOR: Carroll
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public authorities law, in relation to requiring the New York power authority to provide renewable power to all state owned and municipal properties   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To require the New York Power Authority to provide renewable energy to State owned properties.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 amends Section 1005 of the public authorities law by adding new subdivisions 28 and 29. Subdivision 28 makes the New York Power Authority the sole provider, notwithstanding any other provision of law, of all electricity and power to state owned properties. Section 29 limits the New York power authority to the generation and distribution of only renewable energy by January first, two-thousand and twenty-five. It likewise requires the authority shall only plan, finance, construct, acquire, operate, improve and/or maintain transmission facilities for the purpose of transmitting renewable power and energy and renewable generation projects and facilities. Section 2 makes clear that nothing in the previous sections is intended to .limit, impair, or affect the legal authority of the power authority of New York under any other provisions of tile 1 of article 5 of the public authorities law. Section 3 states the act shall take effect two years after becoming law.   JUSTIFICATION: This bill follows the SUNY clean energy roadmap template, which gave campuses a year and a half to demonstrate a plan for how they would get to 100% renewable energy. This bill expands the roadmap to all state and municipally owned properties, ensuring they receive 100% renewable ener- gy from NYPA by 2025.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE. HISTORY: This is a new bill   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined.   EFFECTIVE DATE: Two years from the date enacted.
