“All week my office has been receiving calls from frustrated and angered residents who are concerned with the large jump in price of their Con Ed bill,” State Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. said. “While Con Ed says that they cannot control the price of the energy from their suppliers, they should know who those suppliers are, if there will be any change in price in the energy they provide, and at least notify their customers of any potential changes. I believe there should be an investigation into this situation by the Public Service Commission to ensure that customers are not taken by surprise by such a large jump in price for a necessary utility, especially when so many residents, workers and businesses are still suffering from the negative economic effect of the COVID pandemic.”
