New Electric Service

Planning a Construction Project?

Learn how to apply for a new electric service, or to add an additional meter to your home.

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

Plan in advance 
Residential service requests may take up to five weeks to complete. Availability of service, the acquisition of road opening permits, and third party or municipal inspections may cause time frames to vary. Submit your completed applications as early as possible, as they are processed in the order they are received. Call to speak with a Building and Renovations representative if you need guidance.

Read our installation requirements
Applicants or their representatives requesting service should be familiar with PSEG Long Island's specific service characteristics and installation requirements.

Please make sure your site is within PSEG Long Islands service territory.

To allow us to process your application quickly and efficiently, you will need:
