BILL NUMBER:S6205

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the energy law, in relation to
consumer audio and video products energy efficiency standards

PURPOSE:

The purpose of this bill is to require a study with respect to energy
performance standards for consumer audio and video products.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 of the bill amends the energy law with respect to energy
performance standards for consumer audio and video products.

Section 2 of the bill is the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:

The bill would amend a provision of the Energy Law enacted in 2005
relating to the authority of the New York State Energy Research and
Development Authority (NYSERDA) to develop energy consumption
standards for a list of products, including:

Televisions, Compact audio products, DVD players, DVD recorders, and
Digital television adapters.

The 2005 law required the Department of State to adopt these
regulations by June 30, 2006. To date, the regulations have not yet
been adopted. Recognizing that there have been developments in these
technologies since the enactment of the law in 2005, this legislation
directs the Department of State, in consultation with NYSERDA, to
study and recommend potential energy performance standards and extends
the deadline for adopting such standards to on or before January 1,
2014

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

Similar to S1166-T3 (2013) which passed the Senate and Assembly; but
was vetoed by the Governor.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect on immediately; provided, however, that no
energy efficiency performance standard shall become effective for a
product less than 180 days after such energy efficiency performance
standard shall become final.

AN  ACT to amend the energy law, in relation to consumer audio and video
  products energy efficiency standards

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

  Section  1.  Paragraph  (a)  of subdivision 2 of section 16-106 of the
energy law, as added by chapter 431 of the laws of 2005, is  amended  to
read as follows:
  (a)   On   or  before  [June  thirtieth,  two  thousand  six]  JANUARY
THIRTY-FIRST, TWO THOUSAND FIFTEEN, the secretary, in consultation  with
the president, shall adopt regulations in accordance with the provisions
of  this  article establishing: (i) energy efficiency performance stand-
ards for new products of the types set forth in paragraphs  (a)  through
(n)  of  subdivision  one  of  section  16-104 of this article, with the
exception of such [paragraph] PARAGRAPHS (E) (CONSUMER AUDIO  AND  VIDEO
PRODUCTS)  AND  (g)  (incandescent reflector lamps); (ii) procedures for
testing the energy efficiency of the products covered by paragraphs  (a)
through  (n) of subdivision one of section 16-104 of this article; (iii)
procedures for manufacturers to certify that products covered under this
article meet the energy efficiency standards  to  be  promulgated  under
this  article;  and (iv) such further matters as are necessary to insure
the proper implementation and enforcement  of  the  provisions  of  this
article.   WITH RESPECT TO CONSUMER AUDIO AND VIDEO PRODUCTS, THE SECRE-
TARY, IN CONSULTATION WITH THE  PRESIDENT,  SHALL  CONDUCT  A  STUDY  TO
DETERMINE  WHETHER  AN  ENERGY  PERFORMANCE  STANDARD  FOR SUCH PRODUCTS
SHOULD BE ESTABLISHED, TAKING INTO ACCOUNT  FACTORS  INCLUDING  BUT  NOT
LIMITED  TO,  THE  POTENTIAL IMPACT ON ELECTRICITY USAGE, PRODUCT AVAIL-
ABILITY, MANUFACTURING COST, INNOVATION,  PRODUCT  CONVERGENCE,  PRODUCT
FEATURES AND FUNCTION, AND CONSUMER AND ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS. BASED ON
THE  RECOMMENDATIONS  OF SUCH STUDY, THE SECRETARY, IN CONSULTATION WITH
THE PRESIDENT, MAY ADOPT REGULATIONS IN ACCORDANCE WITH  THE  PROVISIONS

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                           LBD13387-01-3

S. 6205                             2

OF  THIS  ARTICLE  ESTABLISHING  ENERGY  PERFORMANCE  STANDARDS FOR SUCH
PRODUCTS ON OR BEFORE JANUARY THIRTY-FIRST, TWO THOUSAND  FIFTEEN.  With
respect  to  incandescent  reflector lamps, included in paragraph (g) of
subdivision  one  of  section  16-104 of this article, the secretary, in
consultation with the president, shall  conduct  a  study  to  determine
whether  an  energy  efficiency  performance  standard  for such product
should be established, taking into account factors including the  poten-
tial  impact on electricity usage, product availability and consumer and
environmental benefits. If it is determined based  on  this  study  that
such  a  standard  would reduce energy use and would not be preempted by
the federal law, the secretary,  in  consultation  with  the  president,
shall  adopt regulations in accordance with the provisions of this arti-
cle establishing energy performance standards for  such  product  on  or
before January first, two thousand eight.
  S  2.  This act shall take effect immediately; provided, however, that
no energy efficiency performance standard shall become effective  for  a
product  less  than one hundred eighty days after such energy efficiency
performance standard shall become final.
