“Our employees have done an incredible job of responding when our customers needed them the most,” said Robert Schimmenti, the company’s senior vice president, Electric Operations. “They’ve had quite a summer, first with the back-to-back heatwaves and now with this historic storm.”

Isaias' destructions surpassed Hurricane Irene's, Con Ed said, which caused 204,000 outages back in 2011.
