AN ACT in relation to maintaining the continued viability of the state's
  existing large-scale, renewable energy resources

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

  Section 1. Legislative findings and  intent.  The  legislature  hereby
finds and determines:
  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
- solar, wind, hydroelectric, biomass, fuel cells and similar resources.
To  further promote and incentivize the development of renewable energy,
the New York state public  service  commission  recently  established  a
clean  energy standard requiring, among other things, that fifty percent
of the electric load in  the  state  be  served  entirely  by  renewable
resources by the year 2030 (i.e., 50 by 30 target).
  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 six percent
per year or double the growth rate of the entire United  States  economy
