Re: Comments on the Draft Scope of the 2013 New York State Energy Plan

The Hudson Renewable Energy Institute (THREI) is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 educational corporation established to encourage the development and use of renewable energy through open market mechanisms. Contained herein are comments from the Institute that hopefully will assist Plan developers in their scope of work.

First, under the heading of Renewable Resources the Plan Scope calls for a compendium of continuing actions impacting renewable resources. The compendium fails to mention the original intent in the establishment of the State Renewable Portfolio Standard, to wit: to have centralized procurement replaced by competitive market mechanisms. In appropriating almost $3 billion from state jurisdiction customers from 2006 to 2024 consideration should be given to a sustainable renewable energy program that is supported by the competitive market place.
