AP via Topix:
A utility that was heavily criticized after a summer power outage left about 100,000 residents in the dark for 10 days praised itself in a report on the blackout released Thursday.

The report by Consolidated Edison said its officials stopped the blackout from spreading to 90,000 additional customers in the affected areas of Queens. It also detailed how the utility was quick to respond by deploying all available personnel on an around-the-clock basis to restore power.
