    The best way to produce electricity in the Adirondack Park would be by turning the old iron ore mines in Lyon Mountain and Mineville into pump storage power plants

      Exactly this Tim. Blenheim Gilboa produces approximately 1000 megawatts of reliable energy. Instead of wasting millions on solar, the state should focus on updating and expanding it’s hydro facilities.

      I don’t have a clue what pump storage plants are. LOL! I will do some reading.

      I only know of stuff like Hoover Dam.
