National Grid
Economic Development Whether your business is powered by people, technology, resources, and market access you will find that Upstate New York can deliver. Upstate New York has a vibrant and diverse economy with everything a company needs to succeed. With major urban centers like Buffalo, Syracuse, Utica/Rome, and Albany, hundreds of charming villages and towns, and beautiful tracts of farmland and forest - Upstate New York is worth digging in to.

Let the National Grid Economic Development Team provide you with the assistance and resources from our Public Service Commission* approved Economic Development Plan.

The 2009 plan maintains a strong focus on site development, urban revitalization, strategic marketing, and facilitating customer growth through infrastructure assistance, energy efficiency and productivity improvement. The 2009 Plan also reflects an increasing emphasis on sustainable development, the efficient use (and re-use) of existing energy infrastructure, and the strategic deployment of renewable generation technologies.
