ALL RENEWABLES PUSH — POLITICO's Marie J. French: A group of Assembly Democrats and Democratic state Sen. Brad Hoylman are backing a measure to push the state to move toward 100 percent renewable energy, including transitioning off fossil fuels for heating buildings and powering vehicles, by 2032. The campaign is supported by Food and Water Watch, Green Education and Legal Fund, People of Albany United for Safe Energy and other environmental activist groups. Assemblyman William Colton (D-Brooklyn) is sponsoring the measure, NY A5105 (17R) . Gov. Andrew Cuomo has set a goal to source 50 percent of electricity used in the state from renewable sources by 2030 and reduce emissions by 40 percent from 1990 levels by that year. Many environmental advocates are concerned the state may not achieve those goals, and groups like Food and Water Watch have criticized them as not ambitious enough. Read more here.
ICYMI: HOOSICK FALLS ACCEPTS FUNDS — Times Union's Wendy Liberatore: "The Village Board voted on Tuesday night to accept a $330,251 payment from Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics and Honeywell International to reimburse the village for some of the costs associated with the PFOA contamination of its water supply. The resolution to accept the funds, which passed unanimously, is not a settlement agreement and does not release the companies from future reimbursement costs and damages, said Mayor Robert Allen. 'It's a big step, a good step and a helpful step,' Allen said. 'It's a huge help to our immediate cash flow. But there are no strings attached. It does not release them from suing them in the future.'" Read more here.
OFFSHORE WIND MOVEMENT — POLITICO's Danielle Muoio: The state Board of Public Utilities unanimously approved a resolution on Wednesday to jump-start Gov. Phil Murphy's offshore wind development plan. The action directs BPU staff to initiate the rulemaking process to develop offshore wind renewable energy certificates — the mechanism used to fund offshore wind projects. The staff must also engage offshore wind developers to prepare for solicitation for 1,100 megawatts of offshore wind. "Governor Murphy recognizes that New Jersey has a moral obligation to combat climate change," BPU President Joseph Fiordaliso said in a statement. "BPU will play a critical role in this effort as we help New Jersey move toward a cleaner and greener energy state, beginning with our action today to implement [executive order] 8."... The vote shows the BPU is taking steps to follow through with the executive order signed by Murphy in late January. The executive order directed the BPU and the Department of Environmental Protection to implement the Offshore Wind Economic Development Act that was signed by former Republican Gov. Chris Christie in 2010. The act had called on the BPU to develop a renewable credit program for at least 1,100 MW of offshore wind. But under Christie, the agency, which the governor controls, allowed the act to lay dormant for years, and its policies were never implemented. Read more here.
