NYSEG’s parent company has reached a settlement with New York State over its response to winter storms in 2018. According to the governor’s office AVANGRID will pay $10.5 million with $9 million of that coming from NYSEG to provide customer benefits at the direction of the Public Service Commission. The settlement also calls for the company to develop more robust storm response programs, enhance communication and coordination with county governments and other relevant municipalities, and strengthen support for people on life-saving equipment.
