Making Things Work for Your Business
PSEG Long Island
From the start of your work day to the moment you power down, it’s our job to make sure you don’t have to think about the power that made running your business possible.
At PSEG Long Island, we think about it 24/7, because our round-the-clock world demands it.
Across our roughly 100-mile long service area, we keep an eye on more than 15,000 miles of electric wire and 300,000 poles that keep life on Long Island and the Rockaways powered up. There’s a good chance you’ve seen our crews out in the field working to strengthen the energy grid to better withstand severe weather like heat waves and storms.
“It’s a big task,” says PSEG Long Island’s John O’Connell, Vice President – Transmission & Distribution. “The majority of the Delivery & System Charges on your bill are invested back into the system to ensure there’s reliable power every time you switch on your lights or HVAC system.”
Over the past two and a half years, PSEG Long Island has invested $500 million system-wide on upgrades and new equipment, including stronger poles and wires, to make sure reliable energy is there whenever you need it.
We’re also managing a multi-year storm hardening program, funded by FEMA, that’s focused on those areas most damaged during Superstorm Sandy.
There’s a lot that goes into maintaining PSEG Long Island’s industry-leading electric reliability. We’re energized by seeing what our customers get out of it – even if they don’t think about it.
