Ed Day releases position on Orange and Rockland Gas and Electric price Hikes

Special Statement from Rockland County Executive Ed Day on Orange and Rockland’s Proposed Rate Hikes

“Anybody in charge of an organization understands that costs do go up but I find it extremely troubling that at the same time the federal corporate tax rate is dropping they are increasing the costs to our consumers. That should warrant extreme scrutiny by the PSC,” said County Executive Ed Day on Jan 26th. “The savings from Orange and Rockland’s reduced tax burden should be passed along to their customers.”

The County Executives office is aware of the pricing issue and is looking into the matter further.
