 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.  To  further  promote  and incentivize the development of renewable
 energy, New York state  recently  adopted  the  Climate  Leadership  and
 Community  Protection  Act  (CLCPA), which, among other things, mandates
 that by 2030, 70% of electricity consumed in the state  will  come  from
 renewable  resources,  and 100% of such electricity be renewable by 2040
 (CLCPA targets). In 2019, approximately 27 percent of the state's  elec-
 tric load (representing 41,340 gigawatt hours) was supplied by renewable
 resources  - solar, wind, hydroelectric, biomass, fuel cells and similar
 resources.
   3. However, a recently published triennial review of the clean  energy
 standard  (CES)  found  that  falling  commodity  market revenues in the
 wholesale energy markets create a risk that legacy renewable  generators
 may  not  be able to cover their costs. These facilities have options to
 export to neighboring  renewable  portfolio  standard  (RPS)  compliance
 markets and will do so if the renewable energy certificate (REC) revenue
 opportunity is greater than New York's voluntary market.

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