Incoming Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) Chairman Kevin Law acknowledged Thursday he faces a restless constituency ready for lower energy rates.
Law, currently the chief deputy county executive under County Executive Steve Levy in Suffolk, met with LIPA trustees and critics Thursday in Uniondale. A lawyer with energy-policy experience, Law says Governor Eliot Spitzer (D-NY) will allow him to consider all the options in an attempt to cut rates. He says transparency of fees and costs will be a high priority.
The new chairman asked the trustees to elect outgoing Chairman Richard Kessel as CEO until the fall, when Law will take over day-to-day operations and the chief executive role.
