BILL NUMBER:S7482A

TITLE OF BILL:
An act to amend the public authorities law, in relation to the
installation of certain energy technologies

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
Adds certain energy technologies to the measures eligible for
financing through the "Green Jobs/Green New York" Program.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Section One: Amends subdivision 12 of section 1891 of the public
authorities law adding a new paragraph (n) making certain energy
technologies eligible for financing through the Green Jobs Green New
York Program.

Section Two: Sets effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
Promoting widespread dissemination of energy conservation and clean
energy technologies represents a clear and cost-effective pathway for
communities in New York State to curtail emissions of greenhouse gases
and harmful air contaminants, reduce dependence on fossil fuels, lower
housing costs, suppress wholesale electricity prices, support
community development and create green jobs to sustain and enhance our
economy.

Adding certain energy technologies to the list of measures eligible
for low interest loans or on-bill recovery through the Green Jobs
Green New York Program will eliminate the front-end costs that may
prevent consumers from investing in these cost effective energy saving
installations.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
