New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo’s plan to restructure the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) would take giant steps forward in improving the quality of life for every Long Islander.
The impacts of recent weather events and Superstorm Sandy are still being felt throughout Long Island. Restructuring of LIPA will allow for quicker responses in times of need. It will ensure that all communities get the service they deserve, including restoring power more efficiently and in a timely manner. Restructuring LIPA will allow for more accountability and we hope it will provide opportunities to expand renewable energy options in the future, helping build a cleaner, healthier future.
Sustainable Long Island applauds the leadership and plan of Governor Cuomo in the quest to restructure LIPA; increasing accountability and providing more efficient, transparent utility service for all Long Islanders.
