CALL TO EXPLORE LL97 FUND FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING

Urban Green joined eight other organizations to propose that NYC explore the creation of a new fund to support energy efficiency and electrification in affordable housing. The fund would be structured as a new compliance option for LL97, with diverse stakeholder input to shape the details.

The call for city-led action was issued as a better path forward than a current proposal in the Governor’s budget to qualify renewable energy credits from existing, primarily upstate generators for LL97, which provide no new environmental or local benefit and could disincentivize energy efficiency. Urban Green joined several organizations to oppose that approach.

NYC RULES ON ENHANCED GREEN ROOF TAX ABATEMENT

Last week, NYC finalized a rule to designate priority districts to receive an enhanced tax abatement of $15 per square foot for installing green roofs. Green roofs reduce the Urban Heat Island effect, lower energy bills and carbon emissions and improve health.

The tax abatement will help support buildings that comply with NYCs sustainable roof laws. Districts were chosen based on neighborhood heat vulnerability characteristics.
