NUKE SUBSIDIES START — Newsday's Mark Harrington: "Utilities across the state on April 1 begin collecting billions of dollars from ratepayers to subsidize three upstate nuclear plants, including one partly owned by LIPA, as part of Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo's energy strategy. LIPA is not regulated by the Public Service Commission, and it didn't have to pay the assessment but agreed to do so voluntarily. LIPA trustees approved the plan at the state's request last year after the state strategy was approved by the Public Service Commission. While the new charge will increase the power supply portion of bills by $1.85 a month for average residential customers, lower natural gas prices this month will more than offset the new charge, PSEG Long Island said. Accordingly, bills actually decline slightly next month." Read more here.
— Larger commercial and industrial power users, such as New York Air Brake in Watertown, could face significantly more in utility costs. "The Air Brake facility uses roughly 7 million kilowatt-hours per year. For the last two years, Air Brake did receive about $43,000 in energy credits from the New York Power Authority to help offset some energy costs, but the program is slated to end the same day ratepayers will be charged for the subsidies. Thus, Air Brake is looking at $65,000 in new energy costs in 2017."
