STATEMENT OF MAYOR MICHAEL R. BLOOMBERG ON APPOINTMENT OF GIL C. QUINIONES AS PRESIDENT AND CEO OF THE NEW YORK POWER AUTHORITY
"Gil Quiniones is an outstanding choice to lead the Power Authority at a time when we must continue to move towards greater energy efficiency and cleaner energy sources. Gil is a knowledgeable professional who, as Senior Vice President of Energy & Telecommunications at the City's Economic Development Corporation and chair of the City's Energy Policy Task Force, was a driving force in shaping and implementing the City's efforts to reduce energy consumption and make our energy systems cleaner and more reliable - a key component of our long-term sustainability program, PlaNYC. The Power Authority is an important partner for us as we work to meet PlaNYC's goals of reducing greenhouse gases by 30 percent by 2017, improving energy efficiency and modernizing our energy supply infrastructure. The agency has a significant impact on the City's future and Governor Cuomo has found the right person in Gil to lead it."
