Hawley Welcomes Western New York Energy to State Capitol

Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,C-Batavia) and Sen. Rob Ortt welcomed Western New York Energy and CEO Tim Winters to Albany earlier today as they displayed their new 2023 Ford Escape plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) in the state Capitol. Representatives from Western New York Energy spoke with members of the public and the state Legislature on the strides being made in renewable energy.

Western New York Energy’s PHEV uses low-carbon biofuels paired with hybrid technology to provide a reliable solution for emissions reduction. The car is on the leading edge of efficiency, getting 40 miles per gallon and a range of 450 miles on a single charge. Hawley is excited about the advancement of this technology and is proud to see the Western New York region take the lead on these important innovations.

“I’m proud of the work Western New York Energy is doing under Tim Winter’s leadership to lead the charge on sustainable transportation,” said Hawley. “Innovations like this are incredibly important to reduce emissions and create more green jobs. It was an honor to welcome them to Albany today and I will continue to work with my colleagues in the state Assembly to make sure businesses have the freedom to innovate and create more clean energy solutions.”
