NY Power Company Reimbursing Customers for Power Outages
With all the recent power outages due to this winters' storms, one power company is giving back to their customers to make up for the inconvenience.
Hudson Valley power company Orange & Rockland will be issuing the funds to businesses and residents who were without power for 3 or more days in a row. The reimbursements are being issued to help with medications and food that may have spoiled during the extended outages.
Customers may receive reimbursement for up to $225, or up to $515 with receipts. Business owners are eligible for food spoilage reimbursements up to $10,200 with receipts. (Consolidated Edison-Orange & Rockland)
There were tens of thousands of people that lost power for at least some time during the storms. Unfortunately, we have not seen any reports of other power companies providing similar compensation.
Were you affected by power outages and did you have to throw out any food or medications because of it? If you know of anyone downstate that may benefit from this, they can file for reimbursement at Orange & Rockland's website.
