NYPA Offers Low-Cost Power for Regional Economic Development

As part of its commitment to the communities that host NYPA's major hydropower facilities, NYPA offers low-cost power to support business operation and expansion in the Niagara region and in the counties near the St. Lawrence Power Project.

Preservation Power is a New York State economic development program administered by the New York Power Authority (NYPA). It is meant to attract businesses and spur expansion of existing facilities in the North Country region. The program can allocate up to 490 megawatts of competitively priced hydropower generated at NYPA’s St. Lawrence-Franklin D. Roosevelt Power Project in Massena. Preservation Power is only available to qualified businesses in Franklin, Jefferson and St. Lawrence counties.

Minimum eligibility criteria include, but are not limited to, new electric load, new job creation and planned capital investments.
