Massena, NY, Jun 03, 2010 — The New York Power Authority delivered a big heap of hope to St. Lawrence County yesterday. State and local officials gathered in Massena to sign a contract to receive 16 million dollars and 20 megawatts of cheap power for economic development. The gift is meant to compensate for the loss of St. Lawrence River waterfront due to the Moses-Saunders hydropower dam.
