New York Power Authority Profile

The largest state power organization, with 16 generating facilities and more than 1,400 circuit-miles of transmission lines


The New York Power Authority is America's largest state power organization, with 16 generating facilities and more than 1,400 circuit-miles of transmission lines. State and federal regulations shape NYPA's diverse customer base, which includes large and small businesses, not-for-profit organizations, community-owned electric systems and rural electric cooperatives and government entities. Our low-cost power helps support hundreds of thousands of jobs statewide while reducing public-sector costs. We are also a national leader in promoting energy efficiency, the development of clean energy technologies and electric vehicles. Our energy services projects can be found throughout New York State, saving money and megawatts while helping reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Consistent with our long-standing commitment to the environment, we are incorporating "sustainability" into our day-to-day activities and adding green building features at NYPA facilities around the state, including our visitors centers and at our main administrative offices in White Plains. The Power Authority remains true to its mission, serving the public without the use of any tax revenue or state credit. We finance construction of our projects through bond sales to private investors, repaying bondholders with proceeds from our operations.
