Conservation and Electrical Safety to be Topic of NYPA Presentation
September 29, 2009
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MARCY—New York Power Authority (NYPA) community
relations specialist, Ann Cianfrocco, will give a presentation on
energy conservation and electrical safety at the Holland Patent Free
Library on Wednesday, October 7, at 4 p.m.
The presentation is free and open to the public.
All adults in attendance will receive a reusable tote bag containing
an energy tips booklet, a compact fluorescent light bulb and foam

NYPA is a leader in promoting energy-efficiency
initiatives and is working hard to help meet Governor Paterson’s ’45
x 15’ plan, which aims to have 45 percent of the state’s energy
needs met through clean, renewable energy and improved energy
efficiency by the year 2015.
Currently, NYPA’s energy efficiency efforts at
local, county and state government facilities, public schools and
state university campuses, save New York taxpayers over $100 million
a year and help avoid annual emissions of more than 808,000 tons of
greenhouse gases. The electricity saved through these projects each
year is enough to serve about 300,000 people—about the population of
Ann Cianfrocco works in NYPA’s Frederick R. Clark
Energy Center in Marcy, which is the hub of the Power Authority’s
power transmission facilities—coordinating electricity flow from its
18 power projects.
