GE Power announces agreement with New York Power Authority
GE Power announced an agreement with the New York State Power Authority to provide software that will monitor, analyze and enhance the performance of NYPA electricity generating assets across its 16 generating facilities and electricity transmission network. The collaboration will help accelerate NYPA's 5-Year Strategic Vision plan by improving the efficiency, reliability and cost-effectiveness of facilities across the entire organization. NYPA is the first US power provider to sign such an enterprise-wide digital transformation agreement with GE Power. The collaboration will focus on improving system-wide performance and operating costs of NYPA's hydroelectric and gas-based electricity generation capability, while at the same time reducing carbon emissions. NYPA's hydropower plants and low-emitting natural gas plants are typically responsible for 15 to 20 percent of the state's daily electricity output.
