"Growing up in Western New York, I used to drive by the Niagara Power Project and wonder what it would be like to be part of something so immense and so important to New York State. In my current role, I have gained appreciation for all of our generation assets and the talented people who safely maintain and operate them for the benefit of all New York State."
