New York AREA criticizes state’s decision denying CPV permission to fire up

NEW YORK – A state DEC decision to deny the CPV power plant an air quality permit, preventing it from going online, “threatens to leave our region in the dark,” according to New York AREA (New York Affordable Reliable Electricity Alliance).

The coalition of business, labor and community leaders and organizations was created to ensure the state has an ample and reliable electricity supply.

Group spokesman Paul Steidler said CPV Valley is one of the facilities the New York Independent System Operator is counting on to fill the gap left by Indian Point’s closure in three years.

“It’s a very critical supplier for New York especially in light of the continuing demand on hot summer days like his and we think it’s very unfortunate the state, using a technical, has denied the air quality permit.”  

Steidler said NY AREA also supports the Cricket Valley electric generating plant under development in Dover Plains.
