Reinstatement of Article X in New York State: Siting and Licensing of Power Plants in New York City

 

Abstract

On August 4, 2011, Article X of the Public Service Law for the State of New York was reenacted. The revised Article X consolidates the certification process for electric generating facilities producing 25 MW or more under the New York State Public Service Commission (PSC). One of the major provisions of Article X is the inclusion of an environmental impact analysis, though its requirements with regards to facility operational noise are not well defined. The paper discusses quantifiable metrics and noise criteria that the Siting Board may consider in the Article X process going forward.
