Letter from Bill Reid,
CEO of Danskammer Energy
Welcome to the fourth edition of the Danskammer Dispatch! From all of us here at Danskammer, we wish you a happy beginning to summer!
New York State is beginning to reopen the economy. Here in the Mid-Hudson region, investment in infrastructure projects and local jobs will play an important role in our regional recovery. At Danskammer, we’re proceeding through the State’s Article 10 permitting process to upgrade our facility so that it is cleaner and more efficient. This private investment in our region will help stimulate the economy and create hundreds of good-paying, union jobs in the Hudson Valley. I’m excited to share more updates about our progress.
Recently, the Danskammer team took part in a webinar hosted by Power Hudson Valley. Power Hudson Valley is a local campaign effort to educate area communities about the Danskammer project and raise awareness about misinformation related to the upgrade. In case you missed the live event, we’re sharing more information and a link to the full webinar below!
While the last few months have certainly been challenging for us all, we’ve seen how our community has come together to support each other. At Danskammer, we’re proud to give back to the community we’ve been part of for decades and support our first responders through the donation of masks and PPE. And as students and families have adjusted to online learning, we were glad to lend a helping hand and donate Chromebooks to our local schools.
