FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Hi-Res

Get your creativity on for Earth Day! Visitors of all ages are encouraged to participate in a sculpture contest, using recycled materials, as part of the New York Power Authority’s “Every Day is Earth Day,” celebration at NYPA’s admission-free Power Vista visitors center to be held Saturday, April 27, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sculptures, like the one featured above from last year’s contest, should be made of recyclable materials (such as egg and milk cartons, newspapers, toilet paper rolls, plastic grocery bags) and can be brought to the Power Vista for display the week prior to the event. Judging by area artists will take place at 3 p.m. and prizes will be awarded.

About NYPA:

The New York Power Authority uses no tax money or state credit. It finances its operations through the sale of bonds and revenues earned in large part through sales of electricity. ■ NYPA has been designated as the lead entity via Executive Order 88 by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo to form a central management and implementation plan to carry out his Build Smart NY plan to reduce energy use by state facilities by 20 percent by 2020. ■ NYPA is the nation's largest state public power organization, through the operation of its 16 generating facilities in various parts of New York State, participation in a unique public/private partnership to contract for power from a clean generating plant in Queens, and its operation of more than 1,400 circuit-miles of transmission lines. ■ More than 70 percent of the electricity NYPA produces is clean renewable hydropower. Its lower-cost power production and electricity purchases support hundreds of thousands of jobs throughout the state. ■ For more information visit www.nypa.gov or follow @NYPAenergy on Twitter.
