Together, the power allocations will support $5.2 million in capital investments and create 41 jobs.

The NYPA trustees approved a 200-kilowatt hydropower allocation to Mayer Bros. Apple Products in Niagara County that allows the manufacturer to expand in Somerset, creating 19 new jobs and nearly $3.2 million in capital investments.

Mayer Bros., a manufacturer of bottled beverages, including apple cider, fruit juices, water and other related beverage products, will be constructing a 40,000-square-foot building adjacent to its existing facility.

The project will add a second beverage production line to meet new customer needs.

The firm anticipates that the new facility will be operational by late-summer.
