A06261 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A6261
 
SPONSOR: Stern
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the economic development law, in relation to recharge New York power for eligible small businesses and not-for-profit corpo- rations   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This bill would raise the statutory bap on the amount of Recharge New York power that may be allocated to eligible not-for-profit corporations and small businesses.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section one of the bill amends § 188-a of the Economic Development Law to increase the statutory cap on the amount of Recharge New York power that may be allocated to eligible not-for-profit corporations and small businesses from 100 megawatts to 150 megawatts. Section two of the bill sets the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: The New York Power Authority (NYPA) administers the Recharge New York program (RNY program) with the assistance of the Economic Development Power Allocation Board in order to provide lower-cost power to not-for- profit corporations and small businesses throughout New York. The goal of the RNY program is to lower energy expenses, and by extension create an economic development benefit, for eligible recipients of RNY power allocations. At present, NYPA has reached the current 100 megawatt statutory cap on RNY power that may be allocated to eligible not-for-profit corporations and small businesses. This bill would increase the statutory cap on RNY power that may be allocated to eligible not-for-profit corporations and small businesses, thereby allowing NYPA to continue to grow and support the RNY program.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: None.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: None.   EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediate.
