In the year since the July 17, 2006, failure of one of Con Ed's networks left 174,000 residents of western Queens without electricity for up to nine days, the utility says it has made $90 million in improvements to that network, as well as a $1.4 billion investment in the overall system. The improvements range from the cable replacement in Long Island City to reforms in infrastructure and customer service.
