NYS Budget Proposal Allows Purchase of RECs for LL97

Feb 3, 2021

Local Law 97, the law that issues fines for buildings who exceed certain Greenhouse Gas Emission limits, has been modified in Governor Andrew Cuomo’s proposed budget proposal.  The new provision would allow building owners to purchase Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) in order to reduce their calculated carbon emissions if the building exceeds the limits. This is a change from the original language in Local Law 97, which required building owners to pay for more expensive efficiency upgrades in order to reduce their building’s emissions.

If you have questions on this new change or would like to calculate whether your building currently exceeds the emission limits laid out in LL97, please contact Stanwich Energy Advisors.

New York State modifies CES program

October 21, 2020

The New York Public Service Commission (PSC) recently announced changes to the Clean Energy Standard (CES) program to help facilitate the goal of 70% renewable energy generation statewide by 2030. Of these changes, we believe it is important to highlight one in particular: The creation of a Tier 4 program in NYISO Zone J (New York City) to value renewable energy.

The creation of this new Tier 4 program means that ESCOs will be obligated to purchase Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) in order to comply with the CES program. This information is currently preliminary and more detail is yet to be published by the PSC, but Stanwich is currently monitoring any developments and assessing how this might impact our customers.

If you have questions on these new changes or would like to discuss future purchasing strategies related to the changes, please contact Stanwich Energy Advisors.

New York City Publishes Guidance on Local Law 33

June 25, 2020

The New York City Department of Buildings has published guidance on Local Law 33 – the law stating that buildings over 25,000 square feet will need to post an energy efficiency grade at all entrances to the building.

The grade will be based on the Local Law 84 data submitted for the previous year, and will be an A, B, C, or D, similar to health code grades that can be seen on restaurants. Typically, Local Law 84 data must be submitted by May 1 of each year. However, due to COVID-19, buildings have until August 1, 2020 to amend or submit their data. Following that, in October, the grade sheet to be posted at public entrances will be available on the DOB NOW portal. It must be posted by October 31.

To read the DOB’s LL33 guidance in its entirety, please view the publication here.

If you have any questions regarding your building’s letter grade or need assistance submitting benchmarking for Local Law 84, please contact Stanwich Energy Advisors.

City of Philadelphia Releases 2019 Energy Benchmarking Report

May 11, 2020

The city of Philadelphia has released their 2019 report on the energy benchmarking that has been submitted by all buildings over 50,000 square feet. The Key Findings from the report are:

  • Since 2013, there has been at least a 12% reduction in total greenhouse gas emissions from buildings participating in the program.
  • Since 2013, Philadelphia’s benchmarked buildings have demonstrated a 5% reduction in overall energy use and over half of all buildings reported every year have achieved energy savings.
  • Since the start of the program, there has been a 53% growth in nationally recognized energy efficient buildings.
  • The three building sectors with the largest contribution to GHGs are Colleges/Universities, Offices, and Multifamily buildings.
  • The average building in Philadelphia is performing slightly better than the national median with an ENERGY STAR score of 55; however, thousands of buildings fall below this score, demonstrating the opportunity to improve energy efficiency in our city’s building stock.

To read the report in its entirety, please visit the city’s website here.

New York PSC Adopts Emergency Order Concerning ESCO Imbalances

March 31, 2020

The New York Public Service Commission has adopted an Emergency Petition filed by Central Hudson Gas & Electric for temporary tariff amendments “to ensure the safety and reliability of the natural gas distribution system.” The need for this stems from decreased electricity and natural gas usage due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the stay-at-home issues ordered.

Under the PSC’s order, Central Hudson will:

  1. Temporarily waive daily imbalance penalties for Retail Suppliers delivering outside the prescribed deadband, and
  2. Adjust the Index pricing applied to Retail Suppliers’ over- and under-deliveries such that the average of the existing Index prices be used for both over- and under-deliveries, effective April 1, 2020 and until such time that the Governor’s Executive Order is lifted.

For more information on this, contact your Stanwich Energy representative today. You can also read additional information from the PSC here.
