This problem was solved by working with Olsun Electrics Corp., the manufacturer of cast iron coil transformers, to ensure that the core and coil construction group could be disassembled from the housing and integrate into the island between the two alignments. The 93,000 miles (150,000 km) of land cables in the Con Edison system could wind 3.6 times around Earth. Nearly 36,000 miles (58,000 km) of overhead contact lines complete the underground system – enough cables to stretch 13 times between New York and Los Angeles.  In 1986, Con Edison asked General Electric (G.E.) and others to provide bids to supply two large transformers. The commandments must be irrevocable for 90 days. G.E. submitted tenders at the same time as others. According to G.E.`s proposal, its offer “would remain valid for 90 days”. At the end of the 90 days, Con Edison asked the tenderers to extend the irrevocability of the tenders until 31 December 1986. By letter of 22 January 14, 2009, eleven of Con Edison`s superiors were arrested for claiming more than a million dollars in bribes in connection with work by a construction company that repaired the explosion of the steam line in Midtown in 2007. According to the federal prosecutor, the employees had authorized payment for unnecessary or unnecessary work and promised faster payment for certain work performed by the construction company in exchange for bribes. The FBI left two retired Con Edison employees and the construction company`s president wearing recorders that recorded suspects who demanded bribes ranging from $1,000 to $5,000.
 Later this year, Con Edison sued Brendan Maher, one of the site managers who was arrested, and later admitted to accepting bribes that the distribution company said amounted to $10,000.  As part of its growing energy storage portfolio, GE will launch a lithium-ion battery solution for the first time with this project. The system will provide two megawatts of power over a four-hour period, and the agreement involves the provision of a complete energy storage system with the associated long-term service contracts. . . .
