6.                      The amount of greenhouse gas emissions attributable to natural gas powered fuel cells shall be credited compared to [a] the electricity grid marginal emissions factor that will be determined by the commissioner and promulgated into rules of the department.

 

Exception: Natural gas powered fuel cells that commence operation prior to the later of January 1, 2023 or the promulgation of such rules, shall be credited compared to the electricity grid marginal emissions factor published in the most recent New York state energy research and development authority renewable energy standard program impact evaluation and clean energy standard triennial review, or a successor to such report issued by the New York state energy research and development authority.

 

§ 2. Section 28-320.3.2.1 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as amended by local law number 147 for the year 2019, is amended to read as follows:

The commissioner shall consult with the advisory board required by this article to develop such greenhouse gas coefficients for utility electricity consumption. When developing such [coefficient] coefficients, the commissioner shall consider factors, including but not limited to the best available New York state energy research and development authority and State Energy Plan marginal forecasts for Zone J for the end of the compliance period and beneficial electrification.
