BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (AP) — The winner of a $1 million sustainable energy contest is set to be announced in Binghamton.

The contest, dubbed 76West, was created by the administration of Gov. Andrew Cuomo to spur research and development into clean energy technology in New York's Southern Tier.

The grand prize winner will be unveiled on Tuesday. Five runners up will split an additional $1.5 million in prize money.

Twenty finalists were announced in June in what is the third year of the competition.

Winning companies must agree to move to the Southern Tier or create a significant business relationship with the region.
