STATEMENT FROM CON EDISON
At the direction of the New York Independent System Operator, we have had to reduce power to some parts of our service area. The situation remains fluid. We continue to urge all customers whose power has been restored to avoid using large appliances and for people without power to turn appliances to the "off" position to avoid further problems.
