Three Niagara Falls ventures get Power Authority aid

Three business ventures have been granted funding from the New York Power Authority’s proceeds from the sale of unallocated electricity from the Niagara Power Project.

Platters Chocolates, which is planning to move into the Wurlitzer building in North Tonawanda, was granted $200,000 for a $1.3 million project that is expected to create 35 new jobs over the next four years and retain 15 others.

The Discover Niagara Trolley operated by the Niagara Falls National Heritage Area also received $200,000 for its two-year pilot project providing hop-on, hop-off transportation service between Niagara Falls and Youngstown.

Niagara Coatings Services was granted 125 kilowatts of low-cost hydropower from the Niagara Power Project to aid the company’s $500,000 expansion to a second plant.
