Hurricane Sandy and the Nor’easter that followed required the largest
electric restoration effort in
Long Island’s history. For those
customers who remain unable to safely receive
power in the flood-damaged areas along the south shore of Long Island
Rockaway Peninsula, we remain committed to working
for you and with you to assist in your recovery.
We have taken several steps to make it
easier to have service restored and have waived
fees for establishing electric service to
temporary housing structures, such as trailers.
If you need assistance, we’ll be happy to guide
you through the process.
For complete details about service
restoration on LI’s
Shore and the Rockaway Peninsula,
employees carry identification badges, and
almost all restoration work can be completed
without entering your home. For your
own safety, please check the ID of anyone
asking to enter your home.
You should only
operate a backup generator outdoors away from
windows and vents to prevent carbon monoxide
poisoning. Disconnect from the electric
system by shutting off the main breaker located
in the electric service panel. Failure to
do this could jeopardize the safety of crews
working to restore power.
