FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

WHITE PLAINS – The New York Power Authority, the nation’s largest state-owned public utility, has expanded the availability of its Internet web site to include a significant portion in the Spanish language.

“As a major provider of electricity and related services in New York State and especially the metropolitan New York City area, we feel it is vitally important to make information about the Power Authority and its activities as widely available as possible,” said Louis P. Ciminelli, chairman of the Power Authority. “This expansion of our web site should help us reach that goal.”

The Power Authority’s web site, www.nypa.gov, provides an array of information about NYPA, its power projects, the services it provides and contact information. In addition, news releases and other communications are available on the site.

The new Spanish information is available by opening the site and then scrolling down the left side menu to “NYPA en Español.” Choosing that link will open that portion of the web site that has been translated from English. It contains mainly information on Power Authority activities in the Southeastern part of New York State and news releases and other information of particular interest to New York City residents.
