Please come support this important piece of legislation that if passed will give us a road map for moving off of fossil fuels to renewable energy + energy storage for NYC!

Bill #1318 calls for a feasibility study to phase out gas-fired «peaker» plants that pollute our air and cause climate change.

The bill amends Section § 24-803 of the Administrative code to add a new subdivision e. Subdivision e requires a report on the feasibility of utilization of renewables with battery storage to replace in-city gas fired power plants. The local law mandates a report on the feasibility of utilization of renewables with battery storage to replace in-city gas fired power plants by the mayor’s office of sustainability or such other office as the mayor may designate. Such report shall include expedited time frames indicating when such replacement can take place should replacement of existing in city power plants with renewables battery storage be found to be feasible and shall review the battery storage potential of lithium ion batteries; liquid air energy storage batteries; sodium sulfur batteries; flow based batteries; lead-acid batteries; and zinc batteries. The Public Service Commission also mandated the development of an energy storage deployment policy pursuant to state law. Moreover, by December 31, 2018, the Commission, in consultation with the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority and the Long Island Power Authority, are required to establish, after a hearing, by order, rules and regulations, a 2030 energy storage goal and a deployment policy to support that goal. Therefore, by December 30, 2019, it should be possible to report on the potential for battery storage to replace gas-fired power plants. New York City will work with the State Department of Public Service, the Long Island Power Authority and NYSERDA to accomplish these aims.
