Mr. Pasquale presented the highlights of staff’s recommendations to the Board.  He said there was one addenda to this item dated November 22, 2006, which included one application for electric savings reimbursement.

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, That the Board hereby finds and determines that such applications meet the requirements of the extended benefits provisions of the Power for Jobs legislation contained in Article 6 of the Economic Development Law as amended by Chapter 645 of the Laws of 2006; and be it further

RESOLVED, That the Board recommends to the Power Authority of the State of New York the 129 applications for extended benefits recommendations for electricity savings reimbursements discussed herein totaling 127,344 kW until December 31, 2006.

 




5.             Request to Approve Extensions to the Terms of Service for 19
Existing Economic Development Power Program Customers   

 

Summary

 

                The members of the Economic Development Power Allocation Board (Power Allocation Board) are requested to recommend approval of an extension to the term of service to June 30, 2007 for 19 existing economic development power program customers, as listed in Exhibit “5-A.”

 

BACKGROUND

 

                The New York Power Authority sells electricity to businesses under several state-authorized economic development programs.  These power sales are made through the Economic Development Power program, High Load Factor Manufacturer program, Municipal Distribution Agency Industrial Power program and other power sales programs.  The capacity and energy for these sales are provided by market purchases and supported by other Authority sources as needed.  In some instances, these customers are served directly by the Authority and in other cases, the customers receive Authority power through resale arrangements with municipal distribution agencies or investor-owned utilities.  Contracts range in length from 5 to more than 20 years.

 

DISCUSSION

 

                Chapter 313 of the Laws of 2005 was signed into law by Governor George E. Pataki on July 26, 2005.  The new law allowed certain Authority power program customers that would be exposed to bill increases as a result of higher market prices before December 31, 2006 to apply for an Energy Cost Savings Benefit.  Under this law, businesses eligible to receive Energy Cost Savings Benefits are limited to Authority customers currently supplied power under the Economic Development Power, Municipal Distribution Agency and High Load Factor programs.  The Energy Cost Savings Benefit was available for the period November 1, 2005 through December 31, 2006.  In 2006, a new law (Chapter 645 of the Laws of 2006) included provisions extending these benefits until June 30, 2007.

 

                The customers detailed in Exhibit “5-A” have allocation contracts, previously recommended by the Power Allocation Board and approved by the Power Authority Trustees that expire on December 31, 2006.  We are requesting the Power Allocation Board to recommend that the Trustees extend these agreements until June 30, 2007 so that the customers may receive the benefits associated with the recently passed law.  The extension will help maintain costs and enable the customers to compete more effectively.  In addition, it will further secure employment levels in New York State.

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

                It is requested that the Power Allocation Board recommend extensions to the term of service to June 30, 2007 for the nineteen existing economic development power program customers, as listed in Exhibit “5-A.”

 

Following consideration of such applications, the Members of the Board present voted unanimously to extend the contracts.

Mr. Pasquale presented the highlights of staff’s recommendations to the Board.  He said that all 33 of the Authority’s EDP customers had applied to have their contracts extended through June 30, 2007, either in October or this month.
