Governor Calls for Investigation into PSEG ‘Failed Storm Response’ During Isaias

PSEG-Long Island has restored more than 220,000 customers of the nearly half-million affected by Tropical Storm Isaias, which “packed an incredible wallop,” Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone said, but a problem customers had being able to report outages needs “a deeper look.”

Governor Andrew Cuomo said there was a failed storm response statewide. He directed the state Department of Public Service to launch an investigation into Verizon, PSEG Long Island, Con Edison, Central Hudson Gas & Electric, Orange and Rockland Utilities, and New York State Electric & Gas “to understand how such a failure could have taken place,” he said.
