Eastern New York
Living and working across the 7,218 square miles and 13 counties of Eastern New York and the Capital Region are some 492,000 residential, 63,750 commercial and 250 industrial National Grid customers. Among them are nearly 1,200 National Grid employees, who maintain and ensure the reliability of the vast infrastructure — more than 15,000 miles of overhead and underground line, over 200 substations, and some 8,594 miles of natural gas pipe — that serves the region. It’s a system that powers economic segments from agribusiness, manufacturing, health care and medical devices to warehousing, technology, paper, government and defense, tourism, nanotechnology and many more.
Across Eastern New York, you’ll find National Grid is upgrading, expanding and investing in our energy delivery system to meet the real economic growth we are seeing in the region. We support that growth in other ways too — including grants, innovative programs, and progressive partnerships and initiatives that have real, positive impacts on our customers and communities. In Schenectady, we’re partnering on massive remediation and redevelopment at the former ALCO site, helping to transform one of America’s oldest brownfields into a waterfront tourism, entertainment, commercial, and residential destination. In Clifton Park, we’re helping create the energy system of the future with an innovative program that will improve system efficiency and resiliency while enabling customers to better manage their energy consumption. We supported an innovative biogas technology upgrade that made the Gloversville-Johnstown wastewater treatment facility the first in New York state to officially export power back into the electricity grid — providing revenue for the towns. And on the manufacturing front, National Grid energy efficiency incentives are helping local companies including Finch Paper and Quad/Graphics stay competitive and add and retain jobs, boosting production while achieving millions of kilowatt-hours in savings.
