New York’s Energy Plans Could Prove Disastrous
Comment by July 1st

Dear Friend,

Like many of you, we are concerned about climate change and support smart action to reduce carbon emissions. Unfortunately, NY’s proposed plans to rapidly “electrify everything” could prove disastrous for NY families and the state economy. If you don’t make your voice heard now, it could be too late.
Dangerous Path
In 2019, then Governor Andrew Cuomo quietly pushed through the country’s most radical carbon emissions law. It empowered a Climate Action Council (CAC) to come up with plans to rapidly cut carbon emissions. Most of the public doesn’t even realize this is happening, yet we only have until July 1 to comment. 

If their “scoping plans” are adopted, you will ultimately be forced to switch to electric heat pumps, stoves and cars, no
matter how much they cost or how poorly they perform. Proposed bans don’t just apply to new buildings- they cover everyone. They also plan on instituting extreme “carbon taxes” on natural gas, heating oil and propane gas, and surcharges on equipment. 
Extreme Costs and Risks
The typical cost just to convert a home to heat pumps is upwards of $20,000. Upgrading your home for electric cars can add even more. Expect electric rates to soar as new demand outstrips our capacity to produce power. Those who can afford it the least will be hurt the most. 

In fact, the reliability of our entire electric grid could be severely compromised. New York already has the most power interruptions in the Mid-Atlantic. Transitioning to an all-renewable electric grid so quickly while vastly increasing electricity demand is downright dangerous.

NY’s Climate Action Council is only required to accept public comments until June 10. The political community is closely watching these comments. It’s time to say “Not So Fast” to higher energy costs, less reliable home heating and a dangerously overburdened power grid. 

We need a balanced energy plan that doesn’t put all our eggs in one fragile, expensive electric basket. Traditional fuels like natural gas, propane gas, and biofuel heating oil, which are becoming increasingly renewable, have an important role to play in safely and cost effectively reducing our carbon output. 

We want to reduce carbon emissions. We just don’t want to do it in way that will cause backlash, disruptions and economic hardship.
