The first heat wave of the season came and went, but already there were problems with electrical service in the city. There were also problems on several subway lines.
Why? Con Edison recently stated that it spent a lot of money upgrading its electrical system and would be able to meet power demand. If so, then why did we see outages around the city?
This company is a monopoly that has the audacity to advocate a substantial rate increase for its residential and commercial customers. Something needs to be done about this outrage. We should not have to worry that power is already in danger of going out this early in the season.
