CON EDISON SUSPENDS TEMPORARY CALL FOR CUSTOMERS IN SOME BROOKLYN NEIGHBORHOODS TO REDUCE USE OF ELECTRICITY
NEW YORK - Problems on electrical equipment in Central Brooklyn have been resolved, and Con Edison is suspending its early Friday evening request urging all customers in the Brooklyn neighborhoods of Crown Heights, Flatbush, East Flatbush and Ocean Hill-Brownsville to discontinue use of non-essential electrical appliances.
Con Edison had implemented a voltage reduction in Central Brooklyn, requesting that customers in the area bounded by Fulton Street, New York Avenue, Clarendon Road and Alabama Avenue temporarily avoid using washers, dryers, air conditioners and other energy-intensive equipment.
The company routinely provides updates to affected customers when these situations occur, both directly and through the media, as the situation warrants. The utility also remains in constant communication with the New York City Office of Emergency Management.
