CON EDISON SUSPENDS TEMPORARY CALL FOR CUSTOMERS IN SOME BROOKLYN NEIGHBORHOODS TO REDUCE USE OF ELECTRICITY
NEW YORK - Problems on electrical equipment in Northwest Brooklyn have been resolved, and Con Edison is suspending its Wednesday afternoon request urging all customers in the Brooklyn neighborhoods of Greenpoint, Williamsburg, Clinton Hill, and Bedford Stuyvesant, west of Throop Avenue to discontinue use of non-essential electrical appliances.
Con Edison had implemented a voltage reduction in Northwest Brooklyn, requesting that customers in the areas of Greenpoint, Williamsburg, Clinton Hill, and Bedford Stuyvesant, as well as Prospect Heights and Park Slope to 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.
