BPU Comments on Utilities’ Performance

The state’s Board of Public Utilities testified before an Assembly panel today on the measures they adopted for electric utilities to improve their storm readiness.

About 103 measures were introduced by the BPU after the Superstorm, but the creation of those measures started following Hurricane Irene in 2011. Most of the BPU’s orders are set to be implemented by the summer, focusing on preparedness efforts, communications, restoration and response, post-event issues, and underlying infrastructure issues.

BPU Secretary Kristi Izzo said the state’s utilities made moderate progress in response and communication between Irene and Sandy, but the public needs and deserves more.

“The board wants to make sure we’re doing as much as we can to minimize the outages and minimize their duration,” Izzo said.
