Will LIPA terminate PSEG?

  As reported in Newsday, on April 15 Assemblyman Steve Englebright and thirteen other members of the NYS Assembly and Senate sent a letter to Governor Cuomo urging that LIPA terminate its contract with PSEG LI and become a true public power company.  You may be well aware of, and participating in, this issue as it has been the topic of much discussion in the public forum and in the media, including many articles and editorials in Newsday.    If you are familiar with and support this position, and would like to follow up on last week’s letter sent by Assemblyman Englebright and other NYS representatives, attached is a simple letter that you may use. Feel free to amend it to reflect your personal thoughts.   The LIPA Board meeting to discuss this topic is on April 28, 2021.     Sending this letter is completely voluntary based on your knowledge and support of the position taken.

Dear Governor Cuomo,  
I am writing to you in support of the letter you received dated April 15, 2021 from selected members of the New York State Assembly and Senate urging the termination of the contract between LIPA and PSEG LI and the creation of a true public power company.    I agree that public utilities are more affordable and reliable for their customers and I agree that “it is the time to allow LIPA to meet the goals that it was created to achieve.”    I want to make my voice heard as a part of the growing chorus of Long Islanders who support public power.   Thank you for your time and attention to this important issue for Long Island.   Sincerely,
