NYSEG Rolls Out $2 Million Program to Assist Specific Groups of Customers with Hurricane Sandy Recovery
– NYSEG, a subsidiary of Iberdrola USA, has up to $2 million in emergency economic development funds available to assist eligible businesses, municipalities, large residential establishments, agri-businesses and farms affected by Hurricane Sandy. NYSEG’s request to implement the program was approved by the New York State Public Service Commission on April 23.
“We are pleased to be able to offer assistance to eligible customers who have already made repairs as well as those who are still recovering,” said Mark S. Lynch, president of NYSEG and RG&E. “Having seen the devastation from Hurricane Sandy first hand, I am confident this new source of funds will be a welcome addition to other sources of assistance already available.”
Completed applications and supporting documents must be submitted by August 1, 2013. However, because funding is limited, eligible customers are encouraged to apply right away. Funding will be provided to eligible customers on a first come, first served basis until available funds are exhausted.
