New York has some of the most expensive residential electricity in the country. But thanks to Niagara Falls and the Robert Moses Dam in Massena on the St. Lawrence River, our state has some of the cheapest power in the nation for industrial plants -- who often get discounted hydropower through the Power for Jobs and Recharge NY programs. Industrial consumers only paid 5.97 cents per kilowatt hour in New York -- much lower Penna's 6.96 cents, Indiana's 7.35 cents, Michigan's 7.38 cents and Ohio's 6.58 cents.
