The Utility Workers Union of America (UWUA) assessed the performance of New York’s electricity utility Consolidated Edison after Hurricane Sandy. The findings are very disturbing. In part because of these efforts, New York State Public Service Commission recently launched an operations audit of staffing levels of major energy utilities.

Following UWUA’s assessment of the performance of New York’s electricity utility Consolidated Edison after Hurricane Sandy, the New York State Public Service Commission (Commission) announced on 16 January 2014 that it would conduct an independent, operations audit at the major New York energy utilities. The audit will focus on the internal and external staffing levels of core utility functions of Consolidated Edison of New York, National Grid’s Upstate Electric Operations and National Grid’s Gas Operations, Central Hudson Gas and Electric, National Fuel Gas Distribution Company, Orange and Rockland Utilities, Rochester Gas and Electric Corporation, and New York State Electric and Gas Corporation.
