The state wants Con Edison and the Long Island Power Authority to make the grade, with new scorecards evaluating their response to big storms.

Governor Andrew Cuomo said the "utility scorecards" will measure an electrical company's performance during a significant outage, such as the ones that followed Hurricane Sandy.

The scorecards will address three areas: how prepared the company was before an outage, how quickly they can restore service and their ability to communicate with customers.

The scorecards are the result of work by the state's Moreland Commission, which was convened by the governor to look into how LIPA and Con Ed handled the disaster.

They must be approved by the Public Service Commission after a public comment period.
