AN  ACT  to  amend  the  energy  law,  in relation to the use of general
  purpose lights in public buildings

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

  Section  1. Section 8-103 of the energy law, as amended by chapter 744
of the laws of 1979, is amended to read as follows:
  S 8-103. Application. 1. On or before April  first,  nineteen  hundred
eighty, the commissioner shall promulgate, and thereafter may amend from
time  to time, standards relating to the lighting of all existing build-
ings, or classes of such  buildings,  for  purposes  of  minimizing  the
consumption of energy and providing for the efficient utilization of the
energy expended for lighting in the use and occupancy of such buildings.
Such  standards  shall be cost effective and shall not impair the health
and safety of the occupants of the  property.  The  standards  shall  be
deemed cost effective if the cost of implementing them would be equal to
or  less  than  the present value of energy and maintenance savings that
would be expected over a seven-year period in a building  to  which  the
standards  are applicable.  PROVIDED HOWEVER, ON AND AFTER THE EFFECTIVE
DATE OF THE CHAPTER OF THE LAWS OF TWO THOUSAND THIRTEEN  WHICH  AMENDED
THIS  SECTION,  ALL  GENERAL  PURPOSE LIGHTS USED IN PUBLIC BUILDINGS IN
THIS STATE SHALL MEET THE ENERGY  EFFICIENCY  STANDARDS  ESTABLISHED  IN
SUBDIVISION TWO OF THIS SECTION.
  2.  THE MINIMUM ENERGY EFFICIENCY STANDARDS FOR A GENERAL SERVICE LAMP
USED IN A PUBLIC BUILDING IN THE STATE SHALL BE AS FOLLOWS:
  (A) BY JANUARY FIRST, TWO THOUSAND SIXTEEN, FOR A LAMP  WITH  A  LUMEN
OUTPUT OF BETWEEN TWENTY-SIX HUNDRED NINETY AND FOURTEEN HUNDRED NINETY,
THE LAMP SHALL ACHIEVE FIFTY LUMENS PER WATT.

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