How the 2017 Changes Affect Your Account
For customers billed on rate:

The Investments We're Making Are Paying Off:

  • Enhanced Tree Trimming and Vegetation Management Process
    In 2016, we trimmed trees along more than 2,600 miles of wires. Tree-related power outages are down 60 percent in areas where the new program has been implemented. 
  • Maintain Reliable Electric Service
    Reliability starts with every piece of equipment that carries electricity to your home and business. This year, we inspected, repaired and replaced equipment in hundreds of locations, island-wide – including strengthening or replacing more than 8,500 poles
  • Improve our Storm Response and Storm Preparedness Program
    Enhancing the storm response program allowed PSEG Long Island to restore power to the more than 82,000 customers that lost power in a severe summer storm in fewer than three days, all while staying in regular contact with customers and elected officials. 
  • Provide Best-in-Class Customer Service
    We’ve worked on enhancing your customer experience with
    big changes that included a brand new, mobile-friendly My Account, bill payment by text message, enhanced Balanced Billing program for greater stability and a new, interactive and mobile-friendly online outage map.

Your rate is shown on the back of your bill above the details of your charges.
