AN ACT to amend the New York state urban development corporation act, in
  relation to creating the dairy farm improved energy efficiency program

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

  Section 1. Legislative findings.   The legislature  hereby  finds  and
declares  that  due to their remote locations at the end of the electric
grid infrastructure, farms are more difficult  to  service  by  electric
utilities.    Strengthening  the  energy systems of individual farms and
developing micro-grids in remote areas will enhance  the  overall  reli-
ability  of  the  electric  system.   The legislature further finds that
assisting dairy farms with high  efficiency  lighting,  high  efficiency
pumping and cooling equipment, and other energy management systems, will
result  in  significant  energy  savings and increased milk yields.  The
legislature hereby declares that providing low  cost  tools  to  farmers
will  help  them  become  more  efficient and reduce their cost of doing
business.  Advancing new technologies will also help to  accelerate  the
development  of  the  energy  services  industry, thus providing new and
expanded job opportunities for New Yorkers.
  Therefore, the legislature seeks to provide funds to encourage  energy
efficient dairy farms through grants and low interest loans for approved
projects to stimulate the New York state dairy industry.
  S  2.  Section  1 of chapter 174 of the laws of 1968, constituting the
New York state urban development corporation act, is amended by adding a
new section 16-u to read as follows:
  S 16-U. DAIRY FARM IMPROVED ENERGY EFFICIENCY  PROGRAM.    1.    DEFI-
NITIONS. FOR THE PURPOSE OF THIS SECTION:
  (A) "AUTHORITY" SHALL MEAN THE NEW YORK STATE ENERGY RESEARCH DEVELOP-
MENT AUTHORITY.

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