Summer's not quite over and we still have at least a few more days of hot weather. Residents and businesses in Flushing have already suffered from at least four electrical outages this summer.
Council Member John Liu continues to call on the energy utility company to rapidly upgrade the area's electrical infrastructure particularly in light of sustained growth in the area. At the same time, we urge everyone to conserve energy to help forestall additional disruptions to our power supply. Energy saving tips from the U.S. Department of Energy are available here.

At the same time, Johnny, shouldn't you be calling for a moratorium on new building until the infrastructure has been upgraded?
