The New York State Public Service Commission says that its staff, along with RG&E, NYSEG and other parties have a proposed settlement over the way the two utilities responded to the March 2017 windstorm.

The storm caused power outages to more than 250,000 customers and Governor Andrew Cuomo had ordered the PSC to investigate the way the two utilities had prepared and responded to that storm which left some customers without electricity for days.

The New York State Public Service Commission on Thursday approved the sale of local broadband company Greenlight Networks to Grand Oaks GLN, LLC.  Grand Oaks is a Pittsford company owned by philanthropist and Paychex founder Tom Golisano.

The PSC says the sale will give Greenlight access to financial capital and allow it to build its high-speed broadband fiber network, as well as optimize its operation in a way that is needed for long term success in a competitive telecom industry.

Especially if they heard the word played at either a slower speed or a faster speed.
