The state is awarding low-cost power to two Auburn companies advancing multi-million dollar expansion projects.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the power allocations Thursday. The New York Power Authority, through the ReCharge New York program, will allocate 310 kilowatts to Currier Plastics and 30 kilowatts to Copper John Corporation, both Auburn manufacturers.
Nearly 30 companies and organizations will receive low-cost power in the latest round of allocations, according to the governor's office. The power will support $1.4 billion in investment and the projects are expected to create more than 1,000 new jobs.
