Article X Issue Brief

The New York Affordable Reliable Electricity Alliance (New York AREA) has developed an issue brief, Article X, New York's Power Plant Siting Law, concerning the more than five-year expired statute governing the siting of power generation facilities in New York.

With New York State facing climate change and air quality issues, sky-high electricity costs, and a potential near-term energy shortage, the adoption of a new power plant siting law in 2008 is imperative.

This issue brief outlines the background of Article X including the measure's provisions, successes, failures and eventual lapse into expiration.
