Albany, N.Y. – Governor Andrew Cuomo sent a letter Wednesday to seven utility companies across New York State urging them to provide safe and adequate ulitity services in a timely manner.
Rochester Gas & Electric Corp. is one of the seven utility companies that received the letter.
In the letter, Cuomo warns the companies of what could happen should they have not been prepared for the storm.
“Under such circumstances, I would direct the Public Service Commission to commence a proceeding to revoke your Certificates. With respect to the Long Island Power Authority, I will make every change necessary to ensure it lives up to its public responsibility. It goes without saying that such failures would warrant the removal of the management responsible for such colossal misjudgments,” Cuomo says in the letter.
Monroe County has over 3,000 RG&E customers without power as of 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.
