FORT DRUM Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo will visit the north country today as a part of his Open for Business statewide tour.
He is scheduled to visit the ReEnergy Black River facility at Fort Drum at 11 a.m., according to a statement Sunday from the governors office.
ReEnergy Holdings LLC is retooling the coal-fired power plant to run on biomass fuel. The $34 million, 60-megawatt facility is expected to open early next year, creating more than 300 jobs, 33 of them full-time, at the plant.
The state Public Service Commission approved the project last August.
