Assemblywoman Simon: Keep Electric Companies Accountable To Homes And Businesses That Need Power

Assemblywoman Donna Simon supported Governor Christie’s announcement yesterday that he is proposing legislation to keep electric utilities accountable to homeowners and businesses during emergencies.

“Even during extreme weather conditions, electric companies must improve their response to power outages,” Simon, R-Hunterdon, Somerset, Mercer and Middlesex, said. “People should not be left in their cold, dark homes with misleading information about when their power will be restored.”

The proposal includes improved plans from utilities and severe penalties against utilities that cannot be passed on to ratepayers.

“This proposal will improve utilities’ performance and hold them accountable to the homes and businesses they service,” Simon said. “This protects ratepayers and represents a strong step toward preventing the catastrophic outages our communities suffered last year.” TLS.
