PSEG Long Island is scheduling to perform storm hardening work through an initiative called Power On. This program will help strengthen 50 miles of distribution lines per year over the next five years, targeting the most vulnerable circuits across Long Island and the Rockaways.

 The project includes:

  • Upgrading and replacing existing electric wire with more resilient and durable wire.
  • Installing new and more durable poles. The poles will be similar in height and have a stronger base. In addition, PSEG Long Island will actively coordinate the removal of old poles with other utilities.
  • Installing shorter cross arms atop some poles to help deflect falling limbs instead of catching them.

The work on this circuit is scheduled to begin the week of November 15. Customers are being sent a letter explaining the work that will be done.
