NYC Requires Stores to Close Doors

Mayor Bloomberg recently signed legislation requiring commercial establishments to keep their doors closed when operating air conditioning systems.

The bill follows the goals of PlaNYC, which seeks to reduce energy consumption and summer peak load demand in an effort to enhance the reliability of the city’s electrical infrastructure.

Stores less than 4,000 square feet in size that are not part of a chain, and restaurants that open to sidewalk cafes, are exempt from the bill.

Bloomberg’s recent proposal for wind turbines to be installed on top of the city’s skyscrapers and bridges has been criticized for being inefficient and costly.

In addition, the city is also facing a shortage of vehicles to meet its plan of making all New York City’s yellow taxis green.
