NYPA - power for jobs


The Power for JobsTM (PFJ) program was created by state law in 1997 to provide economical electricity for businesses and not-for-profit corporations that commit to create or retain jobs in New York. Participants receive program benefits either in the form of PFJ electricity, which NYPA secures from the electricity marketplace, or an electricity savings reimbursement (rebate). Both options require job commitments, as contained in contracts enforceable by NYPA. On August 9, 2010, Governor Paterson signed legislation extending the program to May 15, 2011.


Business customers must create or retain jobs, be at risk of closure or out of state relocation. Not-for-profits must maintain critical community services or benefits that are at risk.

No new Power for Jobs allocations have been made since 2003. Recent amendments to the law have only extended benefits for existing Power for Jobs customers. As a result, no new applications are possible.
