The Power Authority's generation mix ranges from two of the nation's largest hydropower producers to demonstration projects using clean renewable technologies such as fuel cells, solar photovoltaic systems and microturbines.
Our primary generating facilities consist of 16 power producers fueled by flowing water or natural gas and/or low-sulfur oil. Together, they provide up to one-quarter of New York's electricity.
Major ongoing investments to our large hydropower generators will ultimately top $1 billion. The goal: to improve operating efficiency and ensure reliability for decades to come.
The work being done at the three large hydroelectric projects is consistent with the Power Authority's role in being a good steward of these crucial state assets.
