Utilities in New York have an opportunity to explain in detail to the state Public Service Commission the costs associated with climate change -- but will have to be careful with that opportunity. That's because consumer advocates and any would-be opponents will be questioning those numbers since the possibility of rate hikes is factored into the equation. The utilities will need to thoroughly document those anticipated costs and have a strong public relations campaign in support.

Andy, I have no idea why NY utilities wouldn't use the EPA's Social Cost of Carbon, a comprehensive analysis considered to be one of the best in the world. Oh wait, I know why:

'...consumer advocates and any would-be opponents will be questioning those numbers since the possibility of rate hikes is factored into the equation."

i.e., "we can't game the Feds, but Andrew Cuomo is a piece of cake!".
