AN ACT in relation to mandating a study of energy-efficient and sustain-
  able forms of power to replace power generated by Indian Point units 2
  and 3

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

  Section 1. Legislative intent and  findings.  The  legislature  hereby
acknowledges  the  uncertainty  of future operations of the Indian Point
Energy  Center  in  Buchanan,  Westchester  County,  pending  unresolved
issues,  including  New  York  state's  issuance  of  a  state pollutant
discharge elimination system permit pursuant to article 17 of the  envi-
ronmental  conservation  law and a water quality certificate pursuant to
section four hundred one of the federal Clean Water Act  and  a  reactor
license renewal by the federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Due to the
uncertainty over the continued operation of Indian Point Energy Center's
reactors  (IPEC  2  and  IPEC  3) beyond 2013 and 2015 respectively, the
legislature declares the need for a comprehensive plan in the event  the
facility  is  retired.  The  legislature further declares that the state
energy planning board, ("the board") established pursuant to  article  6
of the energy law should be responsible for such study.
  S  2.  1.  In  addition  to  the study required under subdivision 1 of
section 6-108 of the energy law, the board shall  undertake  a  separate
study  to  evaluate the potential impact of the closure and discontinua-
tion of operations by IPEC 2 and IPEC 3. Such study shall include, at  a
minimum,  an  assessment of each of the following: (a) an examination of
strategies to replace energy otherwise produced by Indian  Point  Energy
Center.  The assessment shall examine: (i) additional installed electric
generating capacity; (ii) distributed  electric  generation,  especially
