New York Announces Major Green Infrastructure Projects

Sep 20, 2021

New York Governor Hochul and New York City Mayor De Blasio have jointly announced two major green energy infrastructure projects that could have a large impact on the tri-state area energy markets. The initiative, if approved, will provide New York City with electricity from wind, solar, and hydroelectric plants located in upstate New York and Canada. The projects include the construction of two new transmission lines as well as new renewable energy generation sites. Upon completion, they are expected to generate approximately 18 million megawatt-hours of electricity per year, resulting in a 77 million metric ton reduction of greenhouse gas emissions over the next 15 years. This is enough renewable energy to power 2.5 million homes, and is the equivalent of removing one million cars from New York roadways.

The project is in alignment with several initiatives at both the State and City level, including the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA) and OneNYC 2050, each of which set the goal of 100% clean electricity by 2040 for NY State and NYC, respectively.

The proposal also furthers state-wide economic recovery from COVID-19. The project will generate approximately 10,000 jobs statewide, as well as contribute $8.2 billion in economic development investments. These economic investments include $460 million to support the development of a clean energy workforce, public health initiatives, additional capital improvement projects, and will help improve environmental impacts associated with buildings in disadvantaged areas.

This project is a major step in reaching state-wide carbon neutrality, and increases the resilience of the electrical grid. For more information about the proposal, please see the NYC press release here. More information about the OneNYC 2050 initiative can be found here, and an outline of the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act can be found here.

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.
