There's great news out of Albany today ... the state Public Service Commission has re-opened our case! This means we'll get to be full parties to a new discussion of this project and where the substation goes. The vote was 3-0 and Commissioner Diane Burman made a special mention of the fact that the first time around, the Commission had "less-than accurate information" about the project.
So now's our chance. Team Krenzer has a lot of work ahead but I have to tell you, we feel so energized and supported by our friends and our community that we are eager to get going.
Everyone in the Krenzer family is happy about today's decision, including our children, who we hope will continue our 100-year tradition of family farming. We look forward to working with the Public Service Commission, the Department of Agriculture and Markets, the Department of Environmental Conservation, RG&E and our community leaders to see that this energy project can go forward in a way that preserves
farming for us and our neighbors.
I want to express a special thank you to the TV, radio and newspaper journalists in Rochester and Albany who gave us a chance to tell our family's story.

In farming, it's a no-brainer that you devote time and energy today to create something that has long-lasting benefits. That truth will carry us through the next phase of this adventure!
