RG&E, NYSEG report on production at plants

Hydroelectric generating stations of Rochester Gas and Electric Corp. and New York State Gas & Electric Corp. combined to produce 2.5 billion kilowatt hours of electricity in the last five years, company officials said Thursday.

The power generated from 2006 to 2010 was enough for 70,000 homes, officials said.

“NYSEG and RG&E have operated hydroelectric generating plants for more than 100 years, starting long before the green power movement hit its stride,” President Mark Lynch said in the statement.

“We are committed to this clean, renewable energy source, as is evident by our ongoing investments to keep our hydro plants operating at their peak for years to come.”

RG&E and NYSEG expect to generate 387 million kilowatts of hydroelectric in 2011, officials said.
