PSEG http://wshu.org en New utility, but little changed within the ranks http://wshu.org/post/new-utility-little-changed-within-ranks <p></p><p>After a yearlong campaign to end what New York Governor Andrew Cuomo called a “failed” and “bloated” agency, New Jersey-based PSEG is now almost five months into running Long Island’s electric grid. They took over National Grid's contract with the Long Island Power Authority and assumed much more operational control. But according to records and interviews, much of what was “failed” and “bloated” still remains today. On top of that, it costs more. &nbsp;</p><p></p> Fri, 25 Apr 2014 11:26:20 +0000 Charles Lane 16408 at http://wshu.org New utility, but little changed within the ranks NY reviews PSEG-LI storm plan http://wshu.org/post/ny-reviews-pseg-li-storm-plan <p></p><p>New York’s Department of Public Service held public hearings Thursday on PSEG’s new storm emergency plan for Long Island electric customers.
