MINEOLA, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – PSEG Long Island has announced it is ready for the summer heat.
As WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall reported, the utility has made a number of upgrades to its system ahead of the hot and humid summer months.
“We are in good shape, our system is in good shape and our processes are in good shape,” John O’Connell with PSEG Long Island told Hall. “We have ample electric supply to meet the demands that we expect for the summer.”
He added it’s always a good idea to conserve to help customers save money.
“Moderate use of air conditioners, using fans when appropriate, running major appliances in off hours, sealing up holes and cracks in doors and windows. Common sense items like that that will help the customer as much as they will the electric system,” said O’Connell.
PSEG Long Island began providing power to Long Island residents at the start of 2014 following the dismantling of the Long Island Power Authority.
The Newark-based PSEG won a 12-year, $5 billion contract to take over LIPA.
