GOVERNOR PATERSON PRAISES STATE AGENCIES FOR TURNING GREEN POLICIES INTO PRACTICE

NEW YORK - Governor David A. Paterson today praised the work of State agencies that are cutting their energy needs and announced the Adirondack Park Agency (APA) will install photovoltaic solar equipment at its Ray Brook Headquarters. The solar panels will provide one third of the agency’s energy needs, a major reduction of its outside power consumption.

Governor Paterson issued a Green Procurement and Agency Sustainability Executive Order in April 2008 to promote policies within State agencies and authorities to reduce the consumption of materials and energy and reduce the potential impacts on public health and the environment. The APA was among the first to take action, with assistance from New York Power Authority (NYPA) and New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).
