AN  ACT  to amend the public service law and the public authorities law,
  in relation to the creation of the New York solar industry development
  and jobs act of 2011 and the procurement  of  solar  renewable  energy
  credits;  and providing for the repeal of such provisions upon expira-
  tion thereof

  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.  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  generation  of  such
clean  power,  including the significant creation of much needed jobs, a
reduction of the long-term  costs  of  electricity  generation  for  New
York's  energy  consumers, including transmission and distribution costs
that continue to accelerate in proportion to overall electricity  supply
costs  for  the  residents  of  this state, increased reliability of the
state's electric grid, and a decrease in the  emission  of  harmful  air
pollution, including localized emissions from "peaker" plants and green-
house  gas  emissions.  By  establishing  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. Short title.  This act shall be known and may  be  cited  as  the
"New York solar industry development and jobs act of 2011".

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