On November 13, 2020, DPS provided a recommendation to the LIPA Board as a result of its investigation of PSEG Long Island’s storm response. DPS Staff identified more than 70 potential violations of PSEG Long Island’s Emergency Restoration Plan.
The DPS recommended, among other things, that LIPA:
- evaluate options to terminate PSEG Long Island as LIPA’s Service Provider;
- declare PSEG Long Island’s poor performance during Isaias as a first failure of the Major Storm Performance Metric as defined in the OSA; and
- seek to either terminate or renegotiate the OSA to enable greater oversight by LIPA and DPS.
