Only in Gov. [Andrew] Cuomos New York would a state-of-the-art project that will reduce emissions, keep energy affordable, and deliver reliable electricity to New York consumers face countless, arbitrary delays, API New York Executive director Karen Moreau said in a statement. [CPVs] natural gas plant is critical to ensuring that schools, businesses, hospitals and homes have access to affordable, reliable electricity especially during extreme weather conditions like the polar vortex that we all experienced this past winter.

So shut down the rest of your plants and hide the keys ,then sit back and watch the chaos
The schadenfreude is delicious...
Read it and weep.
I hate this state and city.
The worst part would be leaving friends and family behind.
Hopefully a lesson for any remaining “capitalist” ventures looking to do business in the Peoples Republic of NY. NY welcomes Billionaire/Globalist self declared “socialists”, but regular ol’ Capitalism? A big F.U. from N.Y. I guess they want some silicon valley type “businesses”. Maybe Bezos will throw a few billion into NY. He won’t need electricity, just the Sun and wind.
Cuomo is playing election-year politics and optics. Stupid leftists here in New York cheer every step back to primitiveness, or cost increase, with glee.
Keep telling yourself too we live in a free-market and rule-of-law society, too.
WAWAYANDA The State Department of Environmental Conservation has denied the renewal of the air quality permit for the Competitive Power Ventures (CPV) fracked gas power plant in the Town of Wawayanda.

I’m wondering how in the world someone thought it was worthwhile to build not just one but three solar power installations near Rochester, of all places. Panels covered by snow 7 months out of the year ain’t going to generate squat.
Yet many of the richest NYCers are liberal hypocrits always pulling strings of DNC and MSM living in mammoth energy sucking multi million dollar digs.
In other words “You haven’t paid enough graft. Empty your pockets”.
Mario sank Shoreham and Andy torpedoes Wawayanda
Like father, like son.
Ain’t political dynasties great.
My condolences to my friends and family still living under this despot.
One would think that the serfs in New York would understand that they are ruled by communists.
The mid-atlantic gas producers should reduce supplies to NY, let them buy LNG from the Russians.
“hide the keys” Article is a good read. The enviro-nazis want the plant dismantled
But according to Gov. Cuomo the energy is "affordable."
His environmental policies are keeping it affordable.
It must be "affordable" since New Yorkers are paying their bills.
They might be getting financially gouged every
month in the name of clean energy, but they're getting their electricity.
When will the rolling brownouts occur?
New Yorkers, keep voting for Democrat lunatics.
You will deserve the results of the choices you make.
Any fool who invests in New York, California, or Illinois deserves to get robbed.
Time to do maintenance on all of their other plants simultaneously. :^)
***shutting down the plant four days before it was scheduled to open. ***
Do they mean they shut it down before STARTUP, the proper term.
