Hidden hike in Con Edison deal


AARP — which wants the state to set up a new agency to advocate for consumers on public utility issues — says there’s a rate hike stashed on the back endĀ of Con Edison’s proposed rate freeze. See my coverage of this topic on The Wall Street Journal’s Metropolis blog.

Also, here’s a link to AARP’s original news release on the proposal. The Public Service Commission is expected to vote on the deal at a meeting in February.
