Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are the work hours?
    Crews are expected to work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • Will there be tree trimming?
    Trees growing near power lines significantly increase the chance of power outages and pose safety risks. As we expand and improve our electric circuits, we will trim trees, where necessary, following our utility best practice model (ANSI A300 standards as well as the Best Management Practices Tree Pruning publication): 8 feet to each side; 12 feet above; and 10 feet below the line.
  • Will there be any power outages?
    In the event that a brief outage is required, all affected customers will be notified in advance.
  • Will there be any traffic interruptions?
    There will be traffic and parking disruptions along the project route and immediate area while work is being performed. To ensure traffic moves safely, PSEG Long Island will provide cones, flaggers and signage at the work site, as needed.

    Customers with questions about the project can contact PSEG Long Island Customer Service at 1-800-490-0025, Monday – Friday, between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.

A brief note on COVID-19
PSEG Long Island is deeply committed to the health, safety and wellbeing of our customers, employees and our communities. We ask that customers remain in their homes while crews are working nearby. If customers must speak with our crews, we ask that they practice responsible “physical distancing” and remain at least 6 feet away to ensure the health of everyone involved. The contractor for this project has provided PSEG Long Island with its safety plan, which meets current regulatory requirements with respect to COVID-19, including physical-distancing measures.

We are leveraging the guidance of the CDC and state and local authorities in the areas we operate. At PSEG Long Island, we know that our customers rely on us to power their lives and businesses. We are doing our part in fulfilling this commitment. For more information, please visit

As always, customer and employee safety is our primary concern. Please be cautious when travelling near our construction work zones.
