State Assemblyman Kevin Byrne and Yorktown Town Supervisor Matthew Slater wrote a letter imploring NYSEG to hold a public meeting to address the energy company directly following a proposed rate hike.
They say the reason for the hike is to install stringer poles, upgrade tree trimming an add wires that can withstand more intense storms.
“NYSEG estimates a 13 to 22% increase in delivery costs with this proposal, which would add between $10 to $18 on customers monthly electric bills,” said the company.
