NYPA recognized for efforts in controlling greenhouse gases

The New York Power Authority has been recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency with a Climate Change Award for its efforts to control and monitor greenhouse gas.

NYPA, which received the award during a recent EPA conference in Huntington Beach, Calif., said the honor particularly recognizes the authority for its efforts in containing greenhouse gas SF6 and developing a new software system that facilitates EPA reporting. The gas is frequently used within equipment for damage protection.

The company operates three hydroelectric projects in New York, including the 1,160-MW Blenheim-Gilboa pumped-storage project, 2,525 Robert Moses Niagara, and 960-MW St. Lawrence-Franklin D. Roosevelt hydropower plants.
