The exact amount of the bill credits or rebates to be offered Con Ed customers in Astoria, Long Island City, Woodside and Sunnyside was unclear yesterday.
CON ED CHUMP CHANGE
In a case before the state Public Service Commission, Con Ed offered to set aside $17 million for bill credits or rebates; compensation for food spoilage; a study of the economic damage caused by the outage; and aid for the Million Tree NYC Initiative, a city-led push to plant a million trees.
Con Ed also offered to eat $46 million it's already spent to rebuild the area's electrical network. The rebuilding expense would be charged to the company's shareholders instead of to customers.
Additionally, Con Ed offered to formally apologize in a notice on customers' bills.
