VIDEO: A Powerful Purpose: NYISO Community Engagement

April 26, 2018

Powering New York isn’t just about energy – it’s also about supporting our communities. And when it comes to volunteerism, it’s not just something we do, it’s who we are and what we believe in.

In this video, NYISO President and CEO Brad Jones describes how NYISO employees give back and get engaged in the issues they care about most. From contributing well over $1.5 million to local charities — including March of Dimes, Toys for Tots, and the Ronald McDonald House — to hosting over 9,000 visitors for tours of our facilities, NYISO employees demonstrate the power of a charitable giving culture.

We are an independent, not-for-profit corporation responsible for operating the state’s bulk electricity grid, administering New York’s competitive wholesale electricity markets, conducting comprehensive long-term planning for the state’s electric power system, and advancing the technological infrastructure of the electric system serving the Empire State.
