FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

WHITE PLAINS—A wide variety of public entities in Westchester County have been invited by the New York Power Authority (NYPA) to an Energy Efficiency Seminar on October 10, 2007.  The free seminar will run from 8:30 to 10:30am and will be held at in the Jaguar Room at NYPA’s main administrative office in downtown White Plains located at 123 Main Street.

“This Energy Efficiency Seminar is an example of the longstanding and continuing partnership between the Power Authority and its government customers in Westchester to achieve greater and greater strides in energy conservation,” said Roger B. Kelley, president and chief executive officer, NYPA.

NYPA provides lower than market rate electricity to almost every public entity in the county including most municipalities, school districts, fire districts, libraries, county facilities, parking authorities and waste water treatment plants. 

Each municipal leader, agency head or their designees have been invited to attend to receive basic information on how to use energy more efficiently and possibly reduce their electric utility bill.  

Over the last decade, NYPA and Westchester County government customers have completed $51 million in energy efficiency projects at 240 facilities for annual electric savings of over $7 million.  Projects include high efficiency lighting at Greenburgh Town Hall, energy-efficient traffic signals in Peekskill and New Rochelle, and a new chiller at the White Plains Public Library.  An additional $28 million in projects are in the planning and installation phases.  

Municipal officials interested in more information on this seminar should please email info@nypa.gov and put Energy Efficiency Seminar in the subject line.
