60 Years of Reliable Service
Rise Light & Power owns the Ravenswood Generating Station, New York City’s largest power generation facility. When the city was hit by storms and hurricanes, Ravenswood was there — continuing to deliver reliable, affordable energy to New York homes and businesses. Today, we are modernizing the Ravenswood facility, retiring outdated equipment and investing in clean energy infrastructure. These investments will help us continue to play a vital role in delivering for our neighbors — as we have done since 1963.Learn more »
