Over the course of the 50 year license in support of its operating license for the Niagara Power Project, the New York Power Authority(NYPA) will provide more than $1 billion worth of benefits to Western New York.  These benefits include monetary payments to settlement partners consisting of local municipalities, state agencies, an Indian nation, school districts, and committees supporting the development of the Niagara River Greenway. The amount also includes payments by NYPA for the construction of recreational projects and ecological enhancements related to the License.  In addition to monetary benefits, 32 MW of low-cost hydropower has been allocated to several settlement partners saving the recipients as much as 75% of the cost of energy.
