The New York State Senate has recently passed legislation to create "Recharge NY", a program aimed at creating/retaining jobs by providing businesses with low-cost power. With energy rates nearly twice as high as those in other states, the program has the potential to revive New York's economy and restore countless manufacturing jobs that have been lost to the competitive advantage of other states.
Recharge NY is a continuation of New York's current Power for Jobs program which provides businesses with 455 megawatts of discounted power and proposes to double that number to 910 MW. The program is supported by the Business Council of New York State, the New York Farm Bureau, the National Federation of Independent Business, the Manufacturers Association of Central New York and the Environmental Advocates of New York.
