Oswego County's Public Utility Service is offering low-cost electrical energy to new and expanding businesses in Oswego County. The goal of the low-cost power program is to create or retain jobs using low-cost electricity produced by Entergy Nuclear Northeast at the James A. FitzPatrick Nuclear Power Plant in Scriba.

The Oswego County Public Utility Service is allocating up to 10 megawatts of low-cost power per year until 2010. Entergy is providing the electrical power as part of the tax agreement for the FitzPatrick plant. Entergy Nuclear Northeast is providing up to 10 megawatts of electricity a year, at $32 per megawatt-hour, between 2005 and 2010.

This program provides a substantial cost savings to new and expanding businesses that create jobs in Oswego County. Any unallocated power can be used by local governments and school districts to save on their energy costs.

Businesses may request an allocation through the Oswego County Public Utility Service. Applicants are asked to provide detailed information about the new project they are undertaking, their job creation plans, and their power usage requirements. To be eligible, businesses must meet certain minimum usage requirements and commit to create or retain permanent jobs.

The County Legislature appointed a Public Utility Board to review applications and select eligible businesses. Preference will be given to businesses that are not eligible for other low-cost power programs.

Select Energy, a leading provider of energy solutions in the Northeastern U.S., was chosen by Oswego County to administer the low-cost power program on behalf of the county.

Businesses, municipalities and school districts that are interested in applying should contact Select Energy through its agent, Natural Gas Business Associates of Liverpool, phone 315-453-2482.
