Con Edison Media Relations
For Immediate Release: July 20, 2008
POWER RESTORED TO NEARLY ALL BROOKLYN RESIDENTS
Conservation Appeal Lifted, Customer Service Vans Discontinued
NEW YORK - Con Edison reports that nearly all customers affected by today’s power outages in Sunset Park, Bay Ridge, Borough Park, and Park Slope have been restored. Less than 15 customers remain without power.
Con Edison is also suspending its earlier request for customers in these four Brooklyn neighborhoods to reduce their electricity use.
The three customer service vans set up in Borough Park and Sunset Park this morning have been discontinued. If customers have additional questions or want to report power interruptions or service problems can do so online at www.conEd.com, or by calling Con Edison’s toll-free customer service number 1-800-75-CON ED (1-800-752-6633). When reporting an outage, customers should have their Con Edison account number available, if possible, and report whether their neighbors also have lost power.
