With the Long Island Power Authority little more than a holding company now, new utility PSEG Long Island is set to respond to the first major storm of 2014, and its tenure.
But with the switchover comes a few changes to reporting and tracking power outages across Long Island that winter storm Hercules may bring to the area.
Here's what you need to know:
- To report an outage online, visit https://www.liaccount.com/outage/Report
- To report an outage via text message, text the word "OUT" to 773454
- To report an outage or downed line via phone, call 800-490-0075
- LIPA's outage map is no more. The web address for PSEG's map (which is basically LIPA's old map with a new logo) is https://www.psegliny.com/c.cfm/outage
Let us know in the comments if you are happy to have PSEG in charge.
