AN ACT in relation to maintaining the continued viability of the state's
  existing large-scale renewable energy resources through the  implemen-
  tation of a tier 2 renewable energy credit

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

  Section 1. Legislative findings and declaration. The legislature here-
by finds and declares that:
  1. New York is a national leader in developing and implementing policy
to promote the development of renewable energy resources, the growth  of
which  has significantly benefited the state in numerous ways, including
through reductions in pollutants  that  contribute  to  climate  change,
associated  reductions in adverse impacts on public health, and substan-
tial job growth in the clean energy sector.
  2. In 2016, more than twenty percent of  the  state's  electric  load,
representing  2,354  gigawatt hours, was supplied by renewable resources
such as: solar; wind; hydroelectric; biomass;  fuel  cells  and  similar
resources. To further promote and incentivize the development of renewa-
ble energy, the New York state public service commission recently estab-
lished a clean energy standard requiring, among other things, that fifty
percent  of the electric load in the state be served entirely by renewa-
ble resources by the year 2030, hereinafter the 50 by 30 goal.
  3. A recent study shows  that  New  York's  clean  energy  sector  now
employs  more than 85,000 workers at more than 7,500 business establish-
ments spread out across the state, in  both  the  renewable  energy  and
energy efficiency sectors. With implementation of the clean energy stan-
dard,  clean  energy jobs are anticipated to grow by more than 6 percent
per year or double the growth rate of the entire United  States  economy
in  2016. Proper implementation of the clean energy standard will ensure
that the state meets these job growth projections.

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