Con Ed said it wants to spend $1 billion to protect critical equipment from storms. The first $400 million installment will mean a rate hike of 3 percent.
CEO Kevin Burke said despite the long-winded and widespread outages due to the double-punch of Sandy and the nor’easter, the company will still go ahead with a petition to the Public Service Commission to raise rates.
