BILL NUMBER: S9405 SPONSOR: PARKER TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the energy law, the executive law and the state finance law, in relation to establishing the "advanced building codes, appliance and equipment efficiency standards act of 2022" PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To remove current barriers in the Energy Law that could impede the adoption of updates to the State Energy Conservation Construction Code (Energy Code) needed to align the Energy Code with the clean energy and climate policies and goals of the State, as well as increase the state's efficiency standards for appliances. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 of the bill would title this bill as the "Advanced Building Codes, Appliance and Equipment Efficiency Standards Act of 2022."
Section 2 of this bill would amend subdivision 2 of section 3-101 of the Energy Law by adding the encouragement of clean energy and implementa- tion of the climate agenda set forth within the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act to a statement of the State's energy policy relating to the construction and operation of new buildings and in the rehabilitation of existing buildings. Section 3 of this bill would amend section 11-102 of the Energy Law by revising the definition of "ASHRAE 90.1,", "Historic building" and adds a new definition of "life-cycle cost." by removing the fixed list of changes to existing buildings that are automatically exempt from the Energy Code, and allows the Code Council to determine which exceptions, if any, should be included in the Energy Code and provides that for the purposes of considering the cost effectiveness of proposed amendments to the Energy Code, a life-cycle cost analysis should be used, and second- ary or societal effects, such as reductions in carbon emissions, should be considered. The Authority shall conduct public meetings to provide opportunities for public comment from individuals that could be impacted by regulations, including individuals living in disadvantaged communi- ties as identified by the Climate Justice Working Group. Nothing in this section shall be deemed to expand the powers of the Building Code Coun- cil to include matters that are exclusively within the statutory juris- diction of the Public Service Commission (PSC), Department of Environ- mental Conservation (DEC), Office of Renewable Energy Siting (ORES)or another State entity. Section 5 of this bill would amend section 11-104 of the Energy Law by adding a new subdivision 6, which will provide that the Energy Code shall be designed to help achieve the State's clean energy and climate agenda set forth within the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act. The Building Code Council, in consultation with the Commissioner of the Department of Parks, Recreation and Histo/Ic Preservation, is authorized to provide exemptions to the standards and requirements that would threaten, degrade or destroy the historic form, fabric or function of historic buildings. Sections 6 of this bill would amend the article heading of Article 16 of the Energy Law. Section 6-a amends section 16-102 of the Energy Law by adding a new subdivision 1-a to define "product," meaning any appliance or equipment, other than a motor vehicle, which in operation consumes or is designed to consume energy or to result in the consumption of energy, including any water-related appliance, equipment or fixture that is designed to consume or result in the consumption of energy in its opera- tion or use. Sections 7 through 13 of this bill would amend section 16-102 of the energy law to modify existing definitions and add new definitions for products that would be covered by this bill. Section 14 of this bill would amend section 16-104 of the Energy Law to provide for revisions to the applicability and enforcement of this act. The adoption of efficiency standards for any water-related appliances, equipment or fixtures shall be subject to the approval of the Commis- sioner of the Department of Environmental Conservation. When adopting flexible demand appliance standards, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) shall consider cybersecurity proto- cols, and at a minimum, the North American Electric Reliability Corpo- ration's Critical Infrastructure Protection Standards. Section 15 of this bill would add a new section 16-105 to the Energy Law to authorize the adoption, by regulation, all currently applicable Federal energy and water efficiency standards. The Federal efficiency standards shall remain in effect in the State unless amended or rescind- ed by NYSERDA. Section 16 of this bill would amend section 16-106 of the Energy Law to provide express authority to the President of NYSERDA, in consultation with the Secretary of State, to establish energy and water efficiency performance standards and promulgate regulations to achieve them, conduct investigations and reporting requirements. Pursuant to this section, efficiency standards and regulations established by NYSERDA and the Secretary of State shall not result in a net increase in co-pollu- tant emissions or otherwise disproportionately burden disadvantaged communities as identified by the Climate Justice Working Group. NYSERDA shall conduct public meetings to provide opportunities for public comment prior to adopting a proposed standard or regulation. NYSERDA and the Department of State are required to submit a report to the Governor and Legislature on the status of efficiency standards regulations by March of 2026. New efficiency standards should be developed whenever feasible in coordination with similar efforts by other states. Sections 17 and 18 of this bill would amend sections 16-107 and 16-108 of the Energy Law to provide for investigation and enforcement of violations under this act related to appliance and product standards to provide the Secretary of State with the power and authority to enforce standards and issue fines for violations or refer investigations to the Attorney General for enforcement. Section 19 of this bill would amend section 16 by adding a new section 16-109 of the Energy Law to address potential conflicts of laws. Section 20 of this bill would amend section 94-a of the Executive Law to grant the Secretary of State authority to enforce appliance standards. Section 21 of this bill would amend section 374 of the Executive Law to authorize the Commissioner of the Department of Environmental Conserva- tion and the President of NYSERDA to be appointed to the Building Code Council. Section 22 of this bill would amend section 374 of the Executive Law to require the Building Code Council to, at a minimum, meet quarterly. Section 23 section 97-www of the State Finance Law to provide for admin- istration of certain funds derived from enforcement or settlements under this act. Section 24 would clarify that substance under .review but not yet listed by the United States Environmental Protection Agency pursuant to 42 U.S.0 7671K may be allowed for use if such substance has a lower global warming potential than alternative substances and is in accordance with nationally recognized standards that protect building occupant safety and reduce fire risks. Section 25 is the effective date. JUSTIFICATION: Buildings are the single largest user of energy in the State of New York, accounting for almost 6096 of all energy consumed by end-use in the State. Building energy codes govern new buildings and modifications to existing buildings, directly impacting a building's energy load and carbon footprint. Increasing the efficiency of buildings will have a significant impact on New York's energy use and have a major impact in achieving our energy and climate goals. Increasing the efficiency of buildings will reduce our power demand and decrease our environmental impact while reducing the cost of operating a building. Furthermore, product and appliance standards prevent New Yorkers from wasting money in the use of everyday items by setting performance and efficiency standards that reduce energy use, paying for themselves. Adoption of energy efficiency and GHG standards will conserve energy, reduce pollution and save money. Analysis shows that energy efficiency product standards have the potential to deliver the reduction of over 36 million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (co2e) emissions over the lifetime of measures in place by 2030 - equivalent to removing an average of half a million cars from the road each year. The proposed product and appliance standards will deliver a projected $15 billion of total utility bill savings by 2035 for New York consum- ers, including an estimated $6 billion in total utility bill savings for low-to moderate-income households. This legislation also provides DOS with enforcement authority over any state standards. PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: This is a new bill. FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: To be determined. EFFECTIVE DATE: This act takes effect immediately, except that section 6 through section 23 would take effect 180 days after enactment.
