Our Vision

Our vision sees the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA), a publicly owned, not-for-profit electric utility, transition to operating the grid itself under local control. Private utilities such as PSEG LI are eliminated. LIPA is restructured with an appointed governing board that local voices help determine, has a fairer rate structure, invests its revenues locally, and upgrades the grid to make it more reliable, renewable, and resilient.

Background

The Reimagine LIPA campaign formed after Tropical Storm Isaias to urge the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) to end its public-private partnership model with PSEG, and private utilities in general, in order to create a locally and democratically controlled and operated utility. The Future of the Long Island Power Authority Act of 2022,which we helped pass, established a LIPA Legislative Commission to develop the roadmap to get there.
