MTA Power Plant?

Recommended Posts

Possible dodgy blame attributed to Con Ed aside, would it be more cost effective / reliable for the MTA to have it’s own power generation?

Upsides: It would be a second source, which would give the MTA long term leverage in negotiating power supply deals. Whether be on price, or SLA.

Downsides: A distraction. Big capital expenditure when other possible projects already have people clamouring for them to be implemented.

(Or is it even legally possible? I know some US jurisdictions forbid municipalities from competing with companies, in certain sectors)

 

(admins... if this should be in the random thoughts thread, please merge)
