Draft State Energy Plan Issued

Governor Paterson on August 10, 2009, announced the issuance of the draft state energy plan by the State Energy Planning Board, which is comprised of state officials from various state agencies, representatives of the Governor, and NYSERDA.

The draft plan will be the subject of nine public hearings to allow for public reaction to the draft report between August 18 and September 26. This is the minimum period allowed under the State Administrative Procedure Act.

A quick review indicates little change in existing policies to favor energy efficiency and cleaner power sources.
