Compliance with Executive Order 111 Requirements to Purchase Power from Renewable Energy Sources

Executive Order 111, which was issued in June 2001, requires all State agencies to purchase a certain portion of their electricity from renewable sources (at least 10 percent by 2005 and 20 percent by 2010). The Department of Transportation operates more than 300 facilities throughout New York State. We found that the Department was purchasing some of its power from renewable sources, but not enough to meet the 10 percent target. We also found that the Department had not developed a way to meet the 20 percent target. We recommended that certain improvements be made in the Departmentís efforts to comply with the Executive Order.
