Barbara Reina reports in the Register Star for the first time in nearly two decades, the Stuyvesant Hydro Electric Station officially made electricity by providing power to National Grid in December. It was the first time electricity was produced at the plant since 1994. It is expected to produce six megawatts of power for local consumption. The plant is operational but the work is ongoing, according to a National Grid representative. The connection to the grid will be on and off for a few months and will not hold a regular cycle until the station rehabilitation process is completed, he said. The plant is owned by Albany Engineering, which holds the operating license in partnership with the town of Stuyvesant. Read the full story in the Register Star.
