CON ED TO STUDY PLACING POWER LINES UNDER GROUND
Release Date: September 28, 2006

A few weeks ago, after the Con Ed power outage, I started a lobbying effort urging Con Ed to conduct a study to determine whether it’s feasible to place lines underground. I am pleased that Con Ed has agreed to conduct the study. This is a very positive step – that will enable ratepayers to determine if it makes sense to be proactive. Some residents of Greenburgh have been out of power 5…6…or 7 times this year alone! Many of the power outages happened because of downed trees. If power lines are placed underground we will reduce the potential for severe power outages –like the outages we experienced in 2006.
If Con Ed can’t place wires on every street – all at once—they should consider placing the wires below ground near schools, hospitals, municipal buildings, nursing homes, major business locations.

I have written to Con Ed and am requesting that Greenburgh be one of the areas that are included in the study.
