When the New York Power Authority (NYPA) Trustees convene on Tuesday (July 29), it will mark the first board meeting of NYPA’s newest trustee, Anne M. Kress, who was confirmed by the New York State Senate last month, following her nomination by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo to the NYPA governing board.
Dr. Kress has served as president of Monroe Community College (MCC) in Rochester since 2009. Under her leadership, MCC established the Division of Economic Development and Innovative Workforce Services, which is responsible for developing entrepreneurial and strategic initiatives designed to proactively respond to economic development and training needs.

■ The New York Power Authority 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 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 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 and follow us on Twitter @NYPAenergy, Facebook, Instagram, Wordpress, and LinkedIn.
