Legislation could ease energy costs for area companies
|Recharge NY would allow companies to enter into long-term contracts of up to seven years, allow the state to allocate more energy for the program and expand the benefits to more companies and not-for-profit organizations.|
The Power for Jobs program was created in 1997 to provide 400 megawatts of cheap electricity for businesses and not-for-profit corporations that commit to create or retain jobs in the state.

Participants receive benefits either through a cash rebate from NYPA to offset their electricity costs or through discounted rates.
