FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

MARCY—The New York Power Authority (NYPA) will host a presentation on energy conservation and electrical safety at the Dolgeville Public Library, 24 North Main Street, Dolgeville, Thursday October 21, at 6 p.m.

The presentation, hosted by Ann Cianfrocco, NYPA Community Relations Specialist, 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 gasket insulators (one per household, please).

NYPA is a leader in promoting energy-efficiency initiatives and is working hard to help meet Governor David 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 about $120 million a year and help avoid annual emissions of more than 780,000 tons of greenhouse gases.  The electricity saved through these projects each year is enough to serve approximately 225,000 people—about the population of Buffalo (with the revised number is Buffalo still accurate or is there another large NY city to use?).

Ms. 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 17 power projects and other sources.
