September 17, 2009: State Senator John J. Bonacic (R/I/C – Mt. Hope) has filed comments with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in opposition to the City of New York’s plan to use what is known as the “Traditional Licensing Process” to try and obtain a license for the City’s use of their reservoirs for hydropower.
Senator Bonacic presented opening remarks at the Sullivan County Get-Set Energy Symposium in Loch Sheldrake on Wednesday, October 22, 2014. This event, organized by RUPCO, an independent contractor for NYSERDA, includes organizations that are working to promote products or services related to energy efficiency, sustainable construction, or alternative energy. Senator Bonacic visited with the many vendors who exhibited their “energy smart” products and services, and congratulated all those who put this event together.
Senator Bonacic met with members of the New York State Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NYSRECA) today in Albany, as part of NYSRECA’s lobby day. Among those in attendance at the meeting were representatives from the Delaware County Electric Co-op. An electric co-op provides essential services to rural communities, like those in Delaware County, and supply low cost reliable energy to their customers.
