Expanded comments on the New York State Energy Plan

October 19, 2009

Policy Integrity expanded on our initial comments on the New York State Energy Plan. In this version, more detail is offered on how the state could build efficiency incentives into its economic development programs.

The comments suggest distributing tradable energy vouchers instead of pure electricity subsidies to give businesses additional monetary incentives to reduce their electricity usage—at no extra cost to taxpayers.
