In earlier case, DPU had executives’ pay divulged

Northeast head’s salary still secret

The state Department of Public Utilities, which has balked at demanding disclosure of Northeast Utilities chief executive Thomas J. May’s full 2012 earnings, recently ordered another major utility to completely report the details of its top executives’ salaries, bonuses, and other compensation.

The DPU order, issued less than four months ago, came after a lengthy review of rates for National Grid. The utility at first didn’t report the salaries of its top executives and then, when Attorney General Martha Coakley sought more information, tried to disclose only total earnings while keeping the names of executives secret.
