NBC New York: A study by Pace’s Energy and Climate Center results in pressure on Con Ed

A study by the Pace Energy and Climate Center reveals the true financial impact of the 2006 Queens Blackout which left 200,000 people in Queens without power for nine days.

The heat on Con Edison continues spurred by a just-released study managed by Jamie Van Nostrand of the Pace Energy and Climate Center. The study reveals the true financial impact of the 2006 Queens Blackout which left 200,000 people in Astoria, Long Island City, Sunnyside and Woodside without power for nine days. Van Nostrand’s research shows “the utility reimbursed Queens customers for $17 million, out of $188 million in blackout losses.”
 
Tim Minton, reporting for “Today in New York” on WNBC-TV, went one-on-one with Con Edison’s CEO as the temperatures rise to just about the highest they’ve been since the blackout occurred. Watch a replay of the interview by clicking on this video link –

Pace’s own Director of Entrepreneurship, Bruce Bachenheimer, was quoted in a Newsday Article about Entreprenuership.

Entrepreneurial activity in 2009 was at a 14-year high nationwide, with the highest growth coming among 34- to 44-year-olds, according to the Kauffman Foundation, of Kansas City, Mo., which promotes entrepreneurship.

That’s the demographic – with many well-educated, high-wage, middle managers – who were hard hit during the recession, said Bruce Bachenheimer, director of entrepreneurship at Pace University in Manhattan. “They are not the people you generally think of as entrepreneurs,” he said.

The Star-Ledger Looks to Pace University Economics Professor’s Opinion on the State of American Employment Rates

According to Pace University Economics Professor Farrokh Hormozi: “The state of the American economy, particularly the New York metro area, has been improving consistently since, at least, the third quarter of 2009.”

Star-Ledger: Job figures suggest recovery, but it’s going to be slow . . . . According to Pace University Economics Professor Farrokh Hormozi: “The state of the American economy, particularly the New York metro area, has been improving consistently since, at least, the third quarter of 2009.” Employers are hesitant to believe, however, that this trend is real and will continue. Professor Hormozi notes “employers are influenced by their perceptions of the state of the economy. When the economy is on the downward path, they see the gloomy picture and act quickly to stay afloat, laying off employees. On the way up, on the other hand, they prefer to wait for more assurances. They offer overtime to the existing workers rather than committing to new ones.”
