Typical National Grid gas customers this month saw a sharp increase in a portion of their bills that allows the company to recoup costs when weather is warmer than projected. For Long Island customers, the so-called weather normalization adjustment jumped to just over 70 cents a gas unit compared to just over 4 cents a unit in October. (Gas units are measured in “therms.”)For customers who used 65 units during the most recent period, that amounted to a increase of $42.90.
PSEG Long Island reached an important first step in its plan to bring a new power cable to Shelter Island, extending the first of three tunnels the full 3,328 feet under the Peconic Bay from Greenport. Contractors for the company made land on Shelter Island from the Greenport drilling site on Tuesday morning, within three feet of a planned end point, said project manager Manny Lilimpakis.
LIPA bills for 2018 are projected to rise around 2 percent, or $3.35 more a month for average residential customers, as the authority budgets more for storms and infrastructure improvements amid lower consumer usage and sales. Total revenue for the utility in 2018 will decline to $3.52 billion, a reduction of $61 million from budgeted 2017 levels.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
