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.

Before you apply, understand that:

  • The structure must be vacant
  • Consider a date for turning off the electric service
  • Requests are typically completed in 3-5 weeks, weather permitting
  • When you apply for reconnection, allow 3-5 weeks for reconnection

What you will need to apply
