Demolition Requests

Ensure Safe Removal of Service

Request PSEG Long Island to remove your electric service before beginning demolition of any structure. This will be required before obtaining a demolition permit from your municipality.

You can start your request at any time. If you need to pause to gather information you have 13 days to resume the request, or you will need to start over again. You will save as a Draft and an e-mail is sent to the e-mail address entered. The Draft e-mail will have a draft number in the body of the e-mail, copy and paste that number into the resume request site when asked, then provide the last name as it is displayed and your request will resume where you left off.

Important considerations before you apply:

  • The structure must be vacant
  • Consider a date for turning off the electric service. To turn off service please call Building and Renovation Services (BRS) at 1-844-341-6378
  • A demolition requires that you obtain a demolition letter from PSEG Long Island and removal of the electric meter and service line that provides power to the building. Please contact BRS because closing the account with our billing department will not allow us to issue a demolition letter.
  • Requests to remove electrical facilities are typically completed in 10 business days, weather permitting. 
  • When you apply for reconnection, allow 15-25 business days for reconnection weather permitting
