Low-Cost Power Could Help Spur Business Growth & Create Jobs


Nineteen businesses and organizations in Jefferson, Lewis and St. Lawrence counties are set to get a little boost in the form of low-cost electricity.
Wednesday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the first round of allocations under the state's "ReCharge New York" program.

The idea is that if they save money on electricity, companies will be able to spend more to grow their businesses and create jobs.

Over 500 businesses and not-for-profit organizations were granted nearly 600 megawatts of electricity statewide.

Among those receiving cheap power locally are Lowville bowling pin maker Quibica AMF, Samaritan Medical Center in Watertown, Clarkson University and Great Lakes Cheese in Adams.

The allocation will begin on July 1.

Look here for a complete list.
