MyAlerts is offered at no charge by PSEG Long Island. However, your mobile phone provider may bill you for text messages received and sent with this service. PSEG Long Island is not responsible for these charges. Before using MyAlerts, check with your mobile phone service provider for text message rates and plans.
PSEG Long Island cannot guarantee delivery of text messages. Your mobile phone wireless carrier is responsible for delivering text messages. Text message delivery may be limited by your mobile phone plan, or your carrier's wireless coverage area. Your mobile phone must be on to receive text messages. From time to time, MyAlerts may be unavailable. This could result in undelivered or untimely text messages.
Can my spouse and I both get alerts about our home's PSEG Long Island account on each of our phones?
Yes, for any of your accounts, you can enroll as many different phone numbers or email addresses as you'd like.

MyAlerts is intended for use during normal weather and operating conditions. During times of widespread outages or emergency situations (such as hurricanes, ice storms, etc.), PSEG Long Island focuses resources on power restoration. In these situations, MyAlerts messages may be limited to certain regions, delayed, or both. In times of weather disasters, power outage text messages and emails may not be deliverable.
Power restoration times are only estimates. They are based on the best information we have at the time about the power outage. We generally know how long different types of power outages take to restore, but each power outage may have unique circumstances.
Yes, a Payment Posted message simply means PSEG Long Island has received your payment and has applied it to your account. The payment could still be returned by the financial institution.
A payment reminder is a text and/or email that will be sent to you five days prior to your PSEG Long Island bill due date. If your balance is paid in full, you will not receive a message. If you’re enrolled in DirectPay for automatic payments, the alert will remind you that a payment is scheduled.
Please first check the circuit breaker box at your property to ensure that nothing has tripped to the OFF position. If power is still not restored after checking the breaker, text OUT to PSEGLI (773454) to report the power outage again. There may be additional damage at your location that we were not previously aware of during the original repairs. If you see downed wires, damaged poles, etc., please call us at 1-800-490-0075 to report the damaged equipment.
