Division of Military and Naval Affairs

Compliance with Executive Order 111 Requirements to Purchase Power from Renewable Energy Sources (Follow-Up Report)

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 Division of Military and Naval Affairs owns 54 armories across New York State and is responsible for the operation and maintenance of an additional 372 buildings. In audit 2008-S-79, we found that the Division was purchasing some of its power from renewable sources, but not enough to meet the 10 percent target. We recommended certain actions be taken by the Division, and when we followed up with Division officials, we found that they had implemented our recommendations.
