The Jamestown BPU and the New York Power Authority have reached a vital, early contract agreement to extend the utility's hydropower purchases through September 1, 2040.

According to BPU General Manager David L. Leathers, the BPU's lower-cost NYPA hydropower annually provides the BPU with approximately 90 percent of electricity supplied to BPU electric customers.
