"PSEG UpgradeRead More Stalled State judge backs the town’s stop-work order By Joanne Pilgrim | April 17, 2014 - 1:37pm East Hampton Town’s stop-work order against PSEG Long Island, the utility whose transmission line upgrade has prompted a public outcry here, was upheld on Monday in State Supreme Court, Riverhead. Acting State Supreme Court Justice Ralph Gazzillo denied PSEG’s request for a temporary restraining order that would have allowed it to continue work at the substation. Construction at an Old Stone Highway, Amagansett, power substation will therefore remain stalled, although the utility’s request for a preliminary injunction to prevent the town from further interference is yet to be decided. Meanwhile, Long Island Businesses for Responsible Energy, a new group formed to fight PSEG’s installation of high-voltage wires and large poles along town and village residential streets, has hired lawyers and plans an April 26 meeting in order to gather plaintiffs to sue PSEG." http://easthamptonstar.com/News/2014417/PSEG-Upgrade-Stalled

From Senator Martins (email today): Dear Friend: I wanted to update you on PSEG-Long Island'sRead More ongoing project on the Port Washington Peninsula. As I previously informed you, Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel and I, working together with Supervisor Judi Bosworth and Councilwoman Dina De Giorgio, called on Governor Cuomo to intervene on behalf of local residents who expressed concerns about the large transmission poles PSEG-Long Island is installing. In response to our request, the Governor has directed the Department of Public Service to review the PSEG-Long Island project in an effort to find a way to meet the need for reliable service while also taking into account the community’s needs. I am pleased that the Governor has taken this important step so that the concerns of residents on the Port Washington Peninsula are taken into consideration. Sincerely, SENATOR JACK M. MARTINS

For Mr. Martin's consideration: In addition to conducting a patently false campaign of "FearRead More Uncertainty and Doubt" with regard to Port Washington power demand (no independent review of forecasts or methodology) , CEO Dave Daly flat out lied to everyone in the room when he walked back and denied any contribution of the Glenwood Landing feeder, a fact memorialized in his own slides. Quoting:"The loss of 69kV Transmission Line from Glenwood to Bar Beach will create an overload condition on the existing Port Washington to Great Neck Line due to increased customer demand projected for Summer 2014 and beyond. New Transmission Line prevents the need to load shed for loss of supply from Glenwood to Bar Beach..." Daly's own slide gives the lie to his comments that "Glenwood had nothing to do with the project", and further reinforces that simply re-supplying the Glenwood feeder can solve the problem without 210 80-foot poles. This slide appears at page 4 of: http://www.northhempstead.com/filestorage/7350/7121/7229/7271/Port_Washington_to_Great_Neck_Overhead_Transmission_Project.pdf
