Con Edison has urged customers who recently got their power back in Lower Manhattan to conserve energy while crews work to reinforce underground systems.
Con Edison and Orange & Rockland Utilities said they will distribute both dry and wet ice at various locations to customers without power due to superstorm Sandy.
The effort to restore power to those impacted by megastorm Sandy will apparently take longer than initially hoped.
Talks between Consolidated Edison and its largest union ended Monday night with no agreement three weeks after negotiations began.
Union spokesman John Melia said that negotiations between the power company and Local 1-2 of the Utility Workers of America lasted just over 10 days. The contract expired at midnight on Saturday.
Con Edison, which has been leasing the western half of the 51 Park Place building to the developer, is demanding $1.7 million from the developer after a new appraisal boosted rent to $47,000 a month from $2,700.
“We are seeing some very serious consequences of the storm, including flooding and downed trees and power outages,” Bloomberg said Sunday.
Con Edison says they don’t expect to cut power before the storm hits, but flooding could bring a shutdown to areas including the southern tip of Manhattan and parts of the West Village.
Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer said that a “little-known surcharge” has taken $342 million from the city via Con Ed bills for renewable energy projects, but less than $8 million in jobs has been returned to the city.
Finding a parking spot in New York City is as good as gold, especially in a Brooklyn neighborhood where the situation is already bad — and could get even worse.
They put the “con” in Con Ed. Police in the Bronx were searching Monday for a pair of imposters targeting some of the borough’s most vulnerable citizens.
Just over 1,000 Con Edison customers remain without power in the New York City
The man who was caught in a steampipe blast in Manhattan three years ago has settled his lawsuit against Consolidated Edison.
