Pursuant to New York State Energy Law Article 6, six public hearings were held across New York State to receive public comment on the Draft New York State Energy Plan.
Each participant from the public was given five minutes to address the New York State Energy Planning Board. No formal presentations were allowed, but participants could leave written supporting documents. There was no formal Question-and-Answer format although Board Members could ask informal questions based on the provided testimony. The hearings were professionally recorded and transcribed, and the proceedings were incorporated in the official record of the Plan and posted on the State Energy Plan website.
