Hi Res

In anticipation of the upcoming Independence Day celebrations, New York Power Authority (NYPA) President and Chief Executive Officer Gil C. Quiniones (lower right) gathered with (clockwise from lower left) Senator George Maziarz, Assemblyman John Ceretto, City of Niagara Falls Mayor Paul Dyster, and David Fabrizio, Niagara Falls Veteran Memorial Committee, to visit the recently completed lighting project for the Niagara Falls Veterans Memorial in Hyde Park. Through NYPA’s support, the memorial is lit by 50 energy efficient LED light fixtures that are mounted inground. The lighting was installed by Electrical Services and System Installations of Buffalo.
