Portland, Maine [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Energy East Corporation’s subsidiary Rochester Gas and Electric Corporation (RG&E) plans to invest more than $20 million over the next three years in its Station 2 and Station 5 hydroelectric plants on the Genesee River in Rochester, New York. The investment will result in additional generating capacity of 9 megawatts (MW) at the two plants that currently have a combined generating capacity of approximately 49 MW. Most of the work will take place at Station 2 at High Falls. Planning will begin in 2007 to double the size of the facility and its current 6.5 MW generating capacity.
