5.             Request to Approve Extensions to the Term of Service for 14
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 14 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 fourteen 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.

WHEREAS, 14 customers have applied for extensions to their existing Economic Development Power contracts;

M. Fortunoff, White Plains - Westchester County

Adecco, Inc., Melville - Suffolk County

Administrators for the Professions, Manhasset - Nassau County

Air Industries, Bay Shore - Suffolk County

Diemolding Corporation, Canastota - Madison County

Griffiss Local Development Corp., Rome - Oneida County

Owl Wire & Cable, Inc., Canastota - Madison County

Specialized Packaging Radisson, Inc., Baldwinsville - Onondaga County

Syracuse China Company, Syracuse - Onondaga County

Syroco, Inc., Baldwinsville - Onondaga County

Anchor Glass Container Corporation, Elmira Heights - Chemung County

Racemark International, Inc., Malta - Saratoga County

The Gunlocke Company, Wayland - Steuben County

Aluf Plastics, Inc., Orangeburg - Rockland County

 

 

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, That the Board hereby finds and determines that such applications meet the requirements of Section 184 of the Economic Development Law; and be it further

RESOLVED, That the Board hereby recommends to the Power Authority of the State of New York the total allocation of 27,773 kW to extend the existing contract of the business listed on Exhibit “5-A” to June 30, 2007, and that the terms set forth on such Exhibit “5-A” be incorporated into the Authority’s contract for Economic Development Power.

BACKGROUND

 

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.

 

DISCUSSION

 

The 32 organizations listed in Exhibit “6-A” have agreed to retain more than 14,000 jobs in New York State in exchange for these benefits.  The companies will be eligible to receive these benefits until June 30, 2007. 

 

FISCAL INFORMATION

 

Funding of Energy Cost Savings Benefits for the all the companies participating in the program is not expected to exceed $5,000,000. 

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

The Power Allocation Board is requested to recommend that the Authority’s Trustees approve Energy Cost Savings Benefits to the 32 businesses listed in Exhibit “6-A.”

 

Mr. Pasquale presented the highlights of staff’s recommendations to the Board.  In response to a question from Mr. McGarry, Chairman McCullough said that the Authority has been reviewing the other provisions of the recently passed legislation since it was signed.  He said that the Authority has serious concerns about how such provisions may affect its bondholders and bond ratings, as well as the financial impact in relation to the Authority’s budget going forward.  After staff has completed its analysis, a presentation will be made to the Authority’s Trustees, hopefully by the November Trustees’ Meeting.  Mr. Kelly added that there are constitutional issues to be addressed with regard to these provisions of the legislation, as well as the Authority’s covenants with its bondholders.  Chairman McCullough promised to keep the other EDPAB members in the loop as the process moves forward.

 

Following consideration of such applications, the Members of the Board present voted unanimously to adopt the following resolution:

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, That the Board hereby finds and determines that such applications meet the requirements of the energy cost savings benefits under 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 32 applications for energy cost savings benefits discussed herein totaling 59,373 kW until June 30, 2007.

DISCUSSION

Beaverite Corporation, a leading manufacturer of die cut solutions for various industrial and commercial applications and is located in Croghan, New York.  The Trustees approved a 250 kW Power for Jobs (‘PFJ’) allocation in return for maintaining 60 jobs at their April 29, 2003 meeting.  Beaverite is in job compliance and the Trustees subsequently approved an extension of PFJ benefits at their September 20, 2005 meeting.  They request that their allocation be transferred to Beaver Falls Sealing Products Inc., a new company that made a full asset purchase of Beaverite.  The new company will honor all contract terms and conditions including job commitments.

 

Snyder Industries, Inc., a contracted supplier of machined components for the mining and other heavy equipment industries, is located in North Tonawanda, New York.  At the December 16, 1997 Trustee meeting, Snyder Industries was approved for a 500 kW PFJ allocation in return for a total of 106 jobs.  The Trustees approved an extension of their PFJ contract, including a reduction to 350 kW and job commitment reduction to 70 jobs, at the November 28, 2000 Trustee meeting.  Under the Power for Jobs Extended Benefits legislation of 2004 and 2005, Snyder Industries chose the rebate option and has remained in job compliance with over 100 full time employees.  They wish to transfer their PFJ extended benefits to a new manufacturing facility recently purchased in the City of Tonawanda.  The company has invested over $5 million in building modifications and new manufacturing equipment.  There is no change in ownership of the company and they will continue to honor all commitments made in return for PFJ extended benefits.

Stellex Monitor Aerospace Corp. (‘Stellex’), located in Amityville, NY, is a manufacturer of supplier of complex titanium and aluminum airframe components and assemblies for the aerospace industry.  Stellex currently receives an allocation of 2,000 kW of Economic Development Power (EDP).  In September, Stellex was acquired by GKN Aerospace, a subsidiary of GKN plc in a total asset sale.  The new company will be known as GKN Aerospace Monitor Inc. (‘GKN’). The company will continue to produce the same products and operate at the same plant in Amityville.  Additionally, GKN has endeavored to invest over $8 million in new, state-of-the-art machinery to enhance competitiveness with US as well as with global competitors.  This investment in plant will be completed in the first quarter of 2007.
