  and jobs act of 2010 and the procurement  of  solar  renewable  energy
  credits

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Legislative intent and purpose. It is  the  intent  of  the
legislature  to enable the rapid and sustainable development of a robust
solar power industry in New York by creating  a  scalable,  diverse  and
competitive  solar  energy  market within the state. By tapping into the
state's abundant solar energy resources, it is the further intent of the
legislature to harness the multiple benefits associated with the  gener-
ation  of  such  clean power, including the significant creation of much
needed jobs within the state, a reduction  of  the  long-term  costs  of
electricity  generation for New York's energy consumers, increased reli-
ability of the state's electric grid, and a decrease in the emission  of
harmful air pollution, including greenhouse gas emissions. By establish-
ing  such a program, New York will create a solar energy enterprise that
will elevate the state to be among the world's cutting edge clean energy
industry leaders, while helping to secure increased economic development
for New Yorkers.
  S 2. This act shall be known and may be cited as the "New  York  solar
industry development and jobs act of 2010."
  S 3. The public service law is amended by adding a new section 66-m to
read as follows:
  S 66-M. PROCUREMENT OF SOLAR RENEWABLE ENERGY CREDITS. 1. DEFINITIONS.
AS USED IN THIS SECTION:
  (A)  "BUILDING INTEGRATED PHOTOVOLTAIC EQUIPMENT" MEANS A PHOTOVOLTAIC
DEVICE THAT DIRECTLY FUNCTIONS AS A PART OF THE ENVELOPE OF  A  BUILDING
INCLUDING  INTEGRATED  ROOF  COVER,  FACADE OR BUILDING CLADDING, GLAZED
SURFACES, SOLAR SHADING DEVICES, CANOPIES AND SKYLIGHTS;

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
