TRENTON – Last week, Senator Ronald L. Rice introduced two bills to deal with issues that arose in the wake of Hurricane Sandy in the restoration of power to affected communities. The bills would ensure that residential facilities for seniors and individuals with disabilities have robust generator equipment to provide full power to the facility, and would require electric service providers to create and provide a map of the municipal electric circuit to local public officials.
“After Hurricane Sandy, we recognized that our power delivery system in New Jersey is seriously flawed,” said Senator Rice, D-Essex. “Safeguards for vulnerable populations weren’t sufficient or, in some cases, even operational, and municipal officials and electric service providers were essentially fumbling in the dark in some areas in order to repair the grid and re-power municipalities. By following these basic and common sense proposals, we can be in a much better place moving forward.”
