FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Representatives of the New York Power Authority and Flower City Printing, Inc., Rochester, will be joined by state and local officials on Thursday, Nov. 21, at 2 p.m. to recognize the success of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s ReCharge New York (RNY) power program in the Finger Lakes Region. The event will showcase Flower City Printing as an example of how Finger Lakes companies are saving money under RNY and reinvesting those funds in protecting jobs, and anchoring and growing their businesses.

Governor Cuomo launched the RNY power program to help businesses and other entities lower their operating costs and spur economic development. The program offers up to seven-year contracts for lower-cost power. Also in attendance will be members of the Finger Lakes Regional Economic Development Council who provide strategic guidance to state entities charged with leveraging public funding and resources to promote regional economic growth.
