The Legislative Commission on the Future of LIPA will conduct a hearing for East End communities this Wednesday, Sept. 20 at 11 a.m. at Southampton Town Hall.
The Commission, established in 2022 by the New York State Legislature, is charged with creating “an action plan for implementing a true public power model for residents of Long Island and the Rockaways.”
“The goal is to avoid the tens of millions of dollars in annual management fees paid to an outside utility; establish greater transparency and clearer lines of accountability for the safe, reliable, and affordable delivery of electricity to ratepayers; and give LIPA’s customers a greater say in how this essential service is provided,” according to the Commission.
An earlier round of public hearings was held last winter.
