MARCY—Victor Costanza of Frankfort, a systems analyst at the New York Power Authority’s (NYPA) Frederick R. Clark Energy Center, has been named Employee of the First Quarter for 2007.

Costanza, who joined the Power Authority’s Transmission Business Unit in 2002, was recognized for demonstrating an ongoing commitment to excellence. His dedication was displayed recently when he responded aggressively to a computer system failure at NYPA’s Energy Control Center even though he was off-duty at the time.

“Victor’s knowledge, positive attitude and personal drive make him one of our most valued employees,” said Steven J. DeCarlo, the Power Authority’s senior vice president transmission. “He is a pleasure to work with.”

The Clark Energy Center includes the Energy Control Center, which coordinates the Power Authority’s statewide generation and transmission operations, as well as the Authority’s transmission maintenance and training facilities.
