Adirondack Park Agency accepting public comment on renewable energy production, energy supply policy through Dec. 3

The Adirondack Park Agency (APA) is accepting public comment on its draft policy for Renewable Energy Production and Energy Supply.

The purpose of the policy is to provide guidance for the review and approval of renewable energy projects inside the Adirondack Park with regards to the Adirondack Park Agency Act, the Freshwater Wetlands Act and the Wild, Scenic and Recreational Rivers Act.

The policy is envisioned to advance renewable energy sources, promote energy conservation efforts and expand public awareness to mitigate the negative effects of fossil fuels and climate change.

Wise use of energy resources and the integration of renewable energy resources offers opportunities at a state and Park level to reduce global atmospheric carbon levels and slow climate change.

The draft policy is available for download from the APA’s website: www.apa.ny.gov

The policy is intended to ensure that the APA:

• Embraces the New York State Energy Plan and balances development with the APA Act mandates to protect Park resources;

• Integrates opportunities and concerns for renewable energy production and energy conservation into its Park planning, public education, and project review functions;

• Protects and enhances Park resources and recognizes that renewable energy production and energy conservation are critical to viable, sustainable human communities within the Park and in a state and global context; and

• Incorporates energy conservation measures into its facilities, fleet management and operations.

Please address all written comments on this policy to: Terry Martino, Executive Director NYS Adirondack Park Agency, P.O. Box 99, Ray Brook, NY 12977.
